Check out these new programs on South Carolina Public Radio this fall!
Two new programs, A Way with Words and Throughline, will join the lineup in October.
A Way with Words is an upbeat and lively program about language examined through history, culture and family. Each week, author/journalist Martha Barnette and lexicographer/linguist Grant Barrett talk with callers about slang, old sayings, new words, grammar, word origins, regional dialects, family expressions and speaking and writing well. They settle disputes, play word quizzes and discuss language news and controversies. Airs Saturday at noon on all stations.
Throughline tackles the history behind today’s headlines and takes you back in time to better understand the present. Each week, hosts Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei bring their fresh perspectives to a new topic and explore the historical underpinnings of our tumultuous current events landscape. Airs Sundays at 1:00 p.m. on all stations.
Join us Saturdays throughout November for Southern Sound Radio.
