Matthew Amroliwala is the host of Global with Matthew Amroliwala on BBC World News each weekday.

As BBC/US partners, WAMC reached out to their pressroom and Matthew agreed to join us today to talk about the Referendum of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union – or Brexit. 

    Clare Balding is an award-winning BBC broadcaster and writer. At the London Olympics of 2012 she was proclaimed a “national treasure.'” She became the face of the BBC’s horse racing coverage in 1998, and now works across a wide range of sports. She will join us to tell tales from her new memoir, My Animals and Other Family.

Due to ongoing NPR special coverage of the events in Boston, the producers of Talk of the Nation/Science Friday have decided not to do that program today.  WAMC HD2 will replace Talk of the Nation today with BBC special coverage of the events in Boston  from 2pm to 4pm and from 8pm to 10pm.   Talk of the Nation/Science Friday will return next week.
