With Good Reason

Schedule
88.5-1
Saturday
5:00 am

With Good Reason is an eclectic blend of timely features and interviews designed to appeal to general audiences. One listener calls this conversational half-hour program "the best way to make a long drive fly by." Another says "Shows like With Good Reason are why we support public radio." Each week scholars explore the worlds of literature, science, the arts, politics, history, and business--connecting their research to what's happening now. From the controversies over slave reparations and global warming, to the unique worlds of comic books and wine-making, With Good Reason presents timely, extended coverage of issues that challenge how we view ourselves and the world.

Featured guests have included Julian Bond on race in America, James Trefil on the expanding universe, Nikki Giovanni on space travel as a metaphor for the Middle Passage, Alan Cheuse on literary critics and society, Mike Seeger on American folk music, James Farmer on the Civil Rights movement, Aniko Bodroghkozy on sixties television, and Henry Wiencek on George Washington and slavery.

Founded in 1992, With Good Reason is produced for the Virginia Higher Education Broadcasting Consortium by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and is broadcast in partnership with public radio stations in Virginia and Washington, D.C.
