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.

Second Row Center
House lights down. Cue the music. The curtain rises weekly on KRCB’s early-morning news segment Second Row Center.
There’s a lot of theatre in the Bay Area. With so many options and limited time and resources, how does one go about deciding just what to see? That’s where a critic can be of assistance.
Theatre critic Harry Duke has been knocking around Bay Area stages for twenty years since his days in the Sonoma State University Theatre Arts program. He’s turned what used to be post-show conversations with fellow artists into full-fledged reviews of Bay Area theatre that can be found in the North Bay Bohemian and on the North Bay Stage and Screen website. More than a simple recitation of a plot (you can look that up yourselves,) his reviews are honest evaluations of the components that make a good show good and a bad show bad.
Don’t ask Harry what he thinks unless you really want to know.
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."
