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.

We're happy to offer a special way for you to financially support KOSU and help feed hungry children in Oklahoma during the 2017 Fall Membership Drive (taking place between Wednesday, September 13 to Wednesday, September 20).
