New and recent interviews focused primarily on local Bay Area theatre venues, with playwrights, actors, directors and artistic directors, hosted by KPFA theatre critic Richard Wolinsky. Podcasts also feature theatre reviews by Richard Wolinsky along with interviews conducted by KPFA associate theatre critic C.S. Soong. Dates of theatre reviews can be found at http://bookwaves.homestead.com/Theatre_Reviews.html
 
Meg and Morgan take turns tackling life's biggest questions, like "Would I travel back in time just to smell a Sanrio Surprise in the 90's?" and "Why haven't I bitten that bookcase yet?" They review items and then rank them (because that's what podcasts do.) Finally, a podcast from two women in their thirties who AREN'T horny for murder. It's Chocolate Chips For Dinner, because all the other good podcast titles were taken!
