Holiday Gripes

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

HearSay Producer Paul Bibeau will guest host, and he will help you channel your inner Grinch. Let's face it: Sometimes you just can't stand the holidays. The twelve-hour airport delays, creepy surveillance elves, Thanksgiving Carb Apocalypse and lawn ornaments that beep out "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" so it gets into your dreams like Freddy Krueger. We're going to have a therapy session on all of this with Dr. LaDonna Hankins. We want you to call us with your terrible eggnog-soaked stories at 1-800-940-2240 or 757-440-2665.

Today's Guests:

Dr. LaDonna Hankins - Watermark Psychological Services
Lenora Garland - The Cooking Lady Catering
Alana Semuels - The Atlantic

Backlash Midterms

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

A Washington Post reporter will update us on the lawsuit filed by family of the victims of the attack on the USS Cole. Then... A new president often triggers a midterm in which the opposition party gains power and flips one of the houses in Congress. But what happens after that? Does this re-balancing freeze all policy, or can people work together in Washington? We'll examine the record with W&M government professor C. Lawrence Evans. And Dave Ress of the Daily Press has the early word on what will happen in the 2019 state elections. Give us a call at 1-800-940-2240 or 757-440-2665.

Today's Guests:

Robert Barnes - The Washington Post
C. Lawrence Evans - College of William and Mary
Dave Ress - Daily Press

Coming up after the show: Radio Lab
