“The Dinner Party,” hosted by Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newman, is a culture show originally launched as a podcast in 2010. The show segments include “The Icebreaker,” a joke; “Small Talk,” during which top print and online journalists share favorite odd news stories of the week; “Cocktails,” featuring a true tale from each week in history followed by a cocktail recipe; “Eavesdrop,” with an author reading from a news release or answering listeners’ questions; and, the marquee segment of the show, “Guest of Honor,” during which Gagliano and Newman interview celebrities.
“The Dinner Party” airs after NPR news and before local acoustic program “The Back Porch.”
