Mouthful, Smart Talk About Food, Wine & Farming in the North Bay and Beyond
Sunday Evening 6 pm
Host & Producer: Michele Anna Jordan
We think of Mouthful as a conversation around a dinner table, so pour yourself a glass of wine and join us every Sunday evening. Our discussions with winemakers, farmers, cookbook authors, writers, photographers, filmmakers, nutritionists, chefs, restaurateurs and environmentalists take unexpected, surprising and delicious turns as we explore how we eat, drink, grow and celebrate our food, and feed each other. We take the time to get to know our guests, we go beyond sound bites, and we look at food, wine and farming in the larger context of our lives. We’re sometimes political, always passionate, sometimes serious, often lighthearted and occasionally even silly. If you eat, you’ll enjoy Mouthful.
Mouthful is a four-time James Beard Award Nominee for Electronic Journalism.

With unexpected insights, snappy observations, and pithy contextual analysis (yep, sometimes it's even educational!), David's weekly commentary will bring the Bay Area stages right into your car, workplace or living room.

Word By Word
"I like the vitality of in-studio, roundtable interviews," Gil says, "when you have several authors sitting at the same table and focusing on the same theme, you get real conversations. It’s fun, exciting, and often unpredictable."
On the new Word by Word programs, Gil will be inviting a different guest each month to share their unique perspective on a "Great California Writer."
WordTemple on KRCB features Northern California poet Katherine Hastings in discussion with poets and writers. The program showcases authors by presenting interviews and readings of their work, and exposes the KRCB community of listeners to a wide variety of voices and styles. Reconstructions highlighting the work of poets and writers posthumously will also be featured. From the Beats of San Francisco to Russia's Ratushinskaya, WordTemple will feature some of the most interesting work and stories in the world of literature.
