To The Best Of Our Knowledge

Schedule
88.5-3
Sunday
12:00 pm

"To the Best of Our Knowledge" is a nationally syndicated radio show that cracks open the world and the ideas that fuel its engine. We usually produce two hours a week, each revolving around a theme. Some themes are big, like: Are Humans Innately Good? Others go micro, like Revenge of the Nerds. Each show includes interviews that explore the culture, the debate, the stories, the science, and the actual sound of it all. And hopefully, when we're done, we've animated the questions along with the answers.
