Welcome to The Dinner Party Download, a fast and funny hour of culture, food and conversation: “public radio’s arts & leisure section.” In every episode you’ll learn a joke; bone up on an odd bit of history and then wash it down with a themed cocktail recipe; meet artists of note; have your burning etiquette questions answered; savor an emerging food trend; and hear your new favorite song. Plus, unconventional wisdom from hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam.

Customer Reviews

perfect 15 minutes on the subway

Great, witty, public radio show that really speaks to a younger (dare I say hipper) crowd, with music, food, news, and culture all in an easily digestible chunk.

Sharp, witty, timely, fun

Be the envy of your dinner party guests and companions! Slay your enemies with timely news tidbits and bon mots about hip new bands! Dinner Party Download is great because it is short, sweet, concise, timely and funny. Each week the hosts give you an update on key news talking points, interview an interesting artist or musician and provide you with a drink recipe and/or icebreaker joke that you can use to charm the pants off of your key social targets. Relaxed, yet urbane and charming. Have I used enough adjectives yet? Check it out.


I like this podcast. It's light, fun, entertaining and informative. Please continue.
