If you enjoy intellectual, accessible, and provocative literary conversations, you’ll flip for Bookworm. The half-hour weekly program, produced by KCRW, showcases writers of fiction and poetry – all interviewed with insight and precision.
HOST: Michael Silverblatt
We really don’t know how to categorize this program. Is this half-hour collection of song parodies and humor from a glamour girl comic who sounds like Bill Kurtis an arts and culture show? Or does its featuring of incisive rants on progressive issues and politics by a principled radio veteran, activist, and the only openly transgender licensed broadcaster on terrestrial radio make it a progressive talk show? Decide for yourself and don’t miss Brit’s naughty non-PC humor, fierce intelligence, and take-no-BS attitude every week.
HOST: Britany Somers

THIS SHOW IS SO GAY
On July 4, 2008, Ken Schneck sat on a curb on Main Street in Brattleboro, VT, to watch a tiny Independence Day Parade. Seeing a small group handing out fliers about the local radio station gave Ken a thought: “Hey, there should be a gay show.” And This Show is So Gay was born. The Cleveland-based weekly show features interviews with LGBT-community newsmakers and performers that leaves listeners with a challenge: Use your voice the way you know how to use it to make a difference for your LGBT and ally brothers and sisters. And while doing it, remember, why be gay when you can be… SO gay!
