With Good Reason :  Listeners call With Good Reason "the best way to make a long drive fly by" and "a much-needed forum." Each week scholars explore the worlds of literature, science, the arts, politics, history, and business through lively discussion with our ever curious host Sarah McConnell. From reparations and global warming, to the unique worlds of comic books and wine-making, With Good Reason is always suprising, challenging and fun.
