Start the Week With Andrew Marr
Every Monday morning on the BBC, Andrew Marr hosts
Start the Week, one of the liveliest and most wide-ranging conversations to be found on the radio. Unlike most radio shows, Marr's doesn't focus on one theme or topic, but brings together four guests—they might be journalists, historians, actors, playwrights, finance gurus, novelists, or scientists —and guides them through a free-form conversation that ties together all of their expertise. Recent shows have included Roger Scruton on the philosophy of wine, Andrew Dalby on Wikipedia, experts on Russian art, Christopher Meyer on diplomacy, and a British police chief on the end of terrorism.
