This American Life

Friday Feedback for March 3, 2017

Mar 3, 2017

It’s been an interesting week. One person wrote to accuse me of being a ‘minion of Satan’. A more polite listener, Jeff, wrote: “After a long history of listening to WHQR at work, unfortunately today I changed the radio station. I did this because your programming has been way to anti-trump and liberal recently. It appears that WHQR is trying to make some point about how terrible conservatives are. I have a feeling I'm not the only one switching the dial, however I realize that you will continue to have a strong liberal listener following as long as you continue to program to their agendas. I just thought you might want to know. I sure am going to miss Smooth Landings!”

[I] Love your programming and appreciate all you add to the Wilmington community. [I] am wondering about the schedule for This American Life, normally heard noon on Saturdays with a rebroadcast the following Friday at 7:00 PM. However, several times in the last few months, there has been a new broadcast on Friday nights, which was repeated the following day at noon.

Several listeners reacted to a recent criticism of This American Life for a story about using pig intestines as a substitute for calamari. The original comment had found that segment, shall we say, distasteful. Listener Matt wrote:

Listener Ned wrote from Topsail:

NPR is ending Talk of the Nation on July 1st. Is it possible that WHQR will at that time broadcast both hours of the Diane Rehm show? That would be great.
