Great resource for North Carolinians.
Intelligent, imaginative, insightful discourse on a variety of topics related to life and culture in North Carolina. I feel like I get to know my state more and more with every segment. Many episodes inform me of exciting projects and initiatives happening in my locality that I can get involved in.
I love this program. The stories are always relevant and engaging. Frank Stasio consistently asks thought-provoking questions and easily develops a rapport with his guests. I am hooked!
Local focus on both important & enriching topics
Stasio is actually quite brilliant. Upbeat & thoughtful, engaged on both cultural & political, polite but penetrating even the most evasive chat.
Limitations are baked-in: local guests, topics & cultural options all are the very basis of the show.
I like that I can hear the show's summary/intro on WUNC during the news-shows I'm addicted to, and then pick-&-choose from SOT's.
