David Erickson & B.L. OchmanDinner Party Download Culture Dinner Party Download is billed as "a fast and funny hour of culture, food and conversation — it’s 'public radio’s arts & leisure section.'" It is consistently entertaining, and has been my personal source to discover books, shows and movies (most recently: The Wangs vs the World, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Gleason). Every episode stars with an "icebreaker" (a cheesy one-liner), and includes a "history lesson with booze" (where they tell something that happened in history and have a bartender make a drink to celebrate it). There are also party playlists, ettiquette lessons, "eavesdropping" on excerpts from new books, etc. In short, it's a delight to listen to. And, something I look forward to each week -- just like The Full Monty!
