Interchange, an interview-based radio show and podcast produced by WFHB in Bloomington, Indiana, gets to the questions that have shaped how we understand ourselves.

As WFHB's longest running public affairs show, Interchange has shared conversations with hundreds of scholars and other experts on politics, religion, metaphysics, economics, history, revolution, ecology, and climate change. Today the stakes stand in stark relief, we challenge our perspectives—as individuals and communities, as thinkers and actors, as people in the world—in effort to change our course.
