I’m happy to announce that a lot of hard work goes out for public consumption starting this Saturday, January 20th, when the first shows of the new season of the radio show A Way With Words begin broadcasting.
My lovely cohost Martha Barnette and I have been recording since October, trying a bunch of new ideas and perfecting our shotgunning technique for the call-in questions and answers. Our listeners’ quest for knowledge about words and language is limitless—I feel like I’ve been digging in every book in my library.
Besides a huge world-wide listenership that tunes in via streaming and podcast (which means questions from places like Singapore, India, and Afghanistan!), the show is broadcast by electromagnetic over-the-air sure-fire wireless radio on these stations:
KBPS, San Diego, California, 97.7 FM, Saturdays at noon and Sundays at 10 a.m.
WFPL, Louisville, Kentucky, 89.3, Sundays at 7 p.m.
Want to find out how to hear the show on your local public radio affiliate? Drop us a line!.
Also, don’t forget: we’re looking for contestants for our new language quiz!
