Sunday Conversations on Weekend Edition

Written by Fred Vigeant, Director of Programming and Promotions for TV and Radio | Jun 14, 2013 8:56 AM

Take a listen to The Sunday Conversation, a recurring segment on Weekend Edition Sunday with host Rachel Martin Sundays on witf FM. Discover intimate portraits of people experiencing an aspect of the news -- from front page stories to those you might have missed.

Recent guests include:

  • Conrad Anker, an American mountaineer and the leader of the North Face climbing team. Anker has climbed Mount Everest three times and discovered the body of George Mallory, the British climber who may or may not have reached Everest's summit before disappearing in 1924.
  • Gloria Malone, who writes the blog Teen Mom NYC. Host Rachel Martin talks with the former teenage mother about her reaction to New York City's much-criticized new teen pregnancy ads, which feature babies talking to their would-be teen parents.
  • Karen Danielson, who converted from Catholicism to Islam 30 years ago. She now is the director of outreach at the Muslim American Society in Chicago, and talks about the difficulties faced when a white Christian American converts to Islam.

Coming up soon: 

  • Ryan Crocker  - Host Rachel Martin talks with former U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker about the uptick in sectarian violence in Iraq, and his personal reflections about the war.
Listen to Weekend Edition Sunday on witf every Sunday morning 8:00 until 10:00.
