Weekend Connections: Week of June 12th

Jun 16, 2017

Weekend Connections is a collection of some of the most noteworthy moments from the week on Connections with Evan Dawson. This episode includes conversations about:

  • The first pop album created by NPR theme music composer, BJ Leiderman;
  • The stigma of mental illness and the hope of recovery;
  • Settlement houses and why Rochester is a divided community;
  • Having pride in -- rather than hating on -- your hometown.

Evan Dawson talks about what matters to you on Connections, every weekday from noon-2 p.m. You can listen to the program on WXXI-AM 1370 and WRUR-FM 88.5 in Rochester, WEOS 89.5 FM in Geneva, and online. Be part of the program with questions or comments by phone at 1-844-295-TALK (8255), emailFacebook, or Twitter
