About The Dinner Party Download
The Dinner Party Download is an hour-long celebration of culture, food, and conversation designed to help you dazzle your friends at this weekend's get-together. In every episode you’ll learn a joke, bone up on an odd bit of history and then wash it down with a themed cocktail. You'll meet an artist of note, learn the answers to your burning etiquette questions, savor an emerging food trend, and hear your new favorite song.
Plus, unconventional wisdom from hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam.
The Dinner Party Download is produced and distributed by American Public Media.
