Public Radio goes hand in hand with Public Libraries. The programming gives us ideas on new or old books to read. New music to listen to when artists are interviewed or their music is played. Subjects we may not have heard of or didn’t think about may inspire research into Exotic Cooking, Health & Wellness, Pets, or even the news of the day!
Mississippi Public Radio offers locally produced programs as well as some of our favorite syndicated shows. And now it is even easier to listen to your favorite programs using your computer or mobile device to stream live or listen to podcasts of past episodes!
Many of us are familiar with some of the long running classic programs like This American Life, Car Talk, The Splendid Table, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, The Gestalt Gardener and Southern Remedy. There are some new weekend broadcasts that are really fun and have even more content on their websites:
The Dinner Party Download combines interviews, music and food into a great take on modern eating. Ask me Another is a live puzzle, trivia word game show that will keep you guessing. Living on Earth is a savvy and informative weekly environmental news and information program providing news, features, interviews and commentary on a broad range of ecological issues.
Bring your findings from the radio into the library, a partnership in interest!
