 Flyover, a weekly, live, call-in show will focus on the big issues of modern American identity and invite the perspectives of Americans in cities, towns and rural areas that lie beyond the media spotlights. In an increasingly divided political and social landscape, this show offers a new way for listeners to be heard, and to hear and understand the experiences of fellow Americans from the country's heartland.

The film runs Monday, September 25th - Friday, September 29th at the Ruth and Bucky Stein Theatre. Monday - Friday the film will be shown at 7pm and another show on Wednesday at 4pm. "Step is life!" - More than just a hobby for a trio of high school seniors at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, the step dance team represents an escape and an outlet, a way out, and a way to express themselves.

Monday, October 2nd - Wednesday, October 4th, at Thalian Hall Main Stage Theatre. Monday - Wednesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 4pm.   Eleven years after An Inconvenient Truth, and only weeks after the US pulled out of the global climate agreement, Al Gore returns with a powerful exploration of the current state of climate change and what we can do about it. 

Monday, October 9th - Wednesday, October 11th, at Thalian Hall Main Stage Theatre. Monday - Wednesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 4pm.    After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter.

The MC Erny Gallery

On Monday, September 11th, we will sit down with Ben Steelman of Wilmington's StarNews to discuss Dr. Tom V. Morris's two new books, The Viper and the Storm and Socrates in Silicon Valley. Dr. Morris has been a part of WHQR and StarNews's Prologue before as a "public philosopher" and has also been a part of WHQR's CoastLine to discuss his many books and views on ethics. 

A former Morehead Scholar at UNC-Chapel Hill and holds a Ph.D. in philosophy and religious studies from Yale, Morris taught philosophy for 15 years at Notre Dame where he ranked as one of the most popular professors on campus. He then formed the Morris Institute for Human Values and became a noted motivational and inspirational speaker to corporations and government agencies.
