Each week on With Good Reason, our ever-curious host Sarah McConnell takes you along as she examines a wide range of topics with leading scholars. Featured guests have included Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison discussing race in America, Bruce Greyson sharing his study of near death experiences, Mike Seeger exploring American folk music, Aniko Bodroghkozy tuning in on sixties television, Bryan Caplan on the “myth of the rational voter,” and Nikki Giovanni reading from her poetry. You may discover the traditions of the samurai warrior, the ways we pre-judge others based on their accents, or the surprising history of Hawaiian shirts.
With Good Reason is offered as both a half hour and hour show via Content Depot and PRX and Audioport. It is produced by Virginia Humanities for the Virginia Higher Education Broadcasting Consortium and is broadcast on public radio stations across America.
With Good Reason has won five Gabriel Awards for Best Documentary or Public Affairs Programs and is also the recipient of top honors from the Public Radio News Directors, Radio and Television Digital News Association and the Virginia Association of Broadcasters.
