Join station founder Jay Allison for an eclectic mix of topics Sunday evenings 7 to 11pm.

For past shows prior to December 2012, visit the Arts and Ideas Archive.

Many programs on Arts & Ideas come from the Public Radio Exchange, a project of Atlantic Public Media in Woods Hole. If you heard something on Arts & Ideas, chances are you can find it on the PRX.
