WRST-FM at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is adding a new cultural program to its regular schedule. The one hour program With Good Reason will be heard Thursdays at 5 p.m.
With Good Reason is produced by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and distributed by the Public Radio Exchange. Each week on the program, scholars explore the worlds of literature, science, the arts, politics, history and business through lively discussion with host Sarah McConnell. Topics range from the controversies over slave reparations and global warming to the unique worlds of comic books and wine-making.
The show debuted on stations in Virginia in 1993 and it’s now heard on over 80 stations from coast to coast. One listener called the program “the best way to make a long drive fly by” and another praised it as “a much-needed forum.”
With Good Reason joins other PRX and local programs in the 5 p.m. hour on WRST:
- Monday–La Mezcla (The Mix): a student-produced program in Spanish which includes news from the Radio Bilingue radio network as well as music and information.
