There are some exciting changes coming to WUNC this weekend. The big news is that starting this Saturday, we will have more fresh programs and fewer repeats. We are pleased to announce that some new weekend voices are joining our old friends Scott Simon, Garrison Keillor, Peter Sagal and Click and Clack.
 
Saturday afternoons at 4 we’re proud to bring you a brand new show from American Public Radio.  The Dinner Party is a snappy take on what everybody will be talking about this weekend. Hosts Brendan Newnam and Rico Gagiliano bring you this hour long celebration of culture, food and conversation.

The Dinner Party on WUNC

The Dinner Party is a culture show designed to help you dazzle your friends at your next social gathering. Launched as a podcast in 2010, The Dinner Party is beloved by audiences for its spontaneity, thoughtfulness and exuberance. The show was lauded by Wallpaper magazine as one of the “Top 40 Reasons to Live in America” and hosts Gagliano and Newnam were named to Food & Wine magazine’s “40 Big Thinkers Under 40” list.

Ask Me Another

NPR's Ask Me Another is a lively hour of puzzles, word games, and trivia played in front of (and with) a live audience. Ask Me Another's entertaining melange of brainteasers and fun is a descendant of Weekend Edition Sunday's Puzzle Segment with Will Shortz, but infused with the vibrancy and quick wit of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me

Listeners can play along, testing their knowledge of history, geography, literature, grammar, spelling, pop culture and even mathematics along with the competitors called up to the stage.
