The Dinner Party Download will end its run on December 1.
Below is part of a note from the show's hosts Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano:
Alas, like all good dinner parties, our party must come to an end. After ten years as a pioneering podcast and six years as a public radio weekend show, on December 1st, we are parting ways with American Public Media.
Seriously, we’re out of wine, and these dishes aren’t going to clean themselves. December 1st will be our last broadcast. However, audio fans, fear not: details about Brendan and Rico’s podcast future are forthcoming! Head to www.brunchishell.com to sign up for more info.
It’s been a joy hosting this party together! We’ve talked to the world’s most creative people, hosted sold-out shows around the country, tricked countless chefs into feeding us for free… and most importantly we’ve had a chance to hear from and interact with all you longtime fans, who have made making this show truly one of the most amazing experiences of our lives.
KOSU is currently evaluating options to replace the show in our programming lineup.
