All of It

Download, listen or watch all podcasts

ALL OF IT is a show about culture and its consumers. ALL OF IT is a show about culture and context. ALL OF IT is a show about culture and the culture. Our aim is to engage the thinkers, doers, makers, and creators, about the what and why of their work. People make the culture and we hope, need, and want the WNYC community to be a part of our show. As we build a community around ALL OF IT, we know that every guest and listener has an opinion. We won’t always agree, but our varied perspectives and diversity of experience is what makes New York City great. ALL OF IT will be both companion for and curator of the myriad culture this city has to offer. In the words of Cristina De Rossi, anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College, London: "Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things." ...In other words, ALL OF IT. --- Join us for ALL OF IT with Alison Stewart, weekdays from 12:00 - 2:00PM on WNYC.

    New Jersey is drowning in plastic. From the Delaware River on its western border, to the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern shore, plastic litter is polluting New Jersey’s waterways, carrying millions of pulverized pieces that end up in our food and water. In a new ongoing series from The Record/NorthJersey.com called “The War on Plastic,” investigative reporter Scott Fallon looks at the limitations of plastics recycling, the coming legislative battle to enact the ban on grocery store bags, straws and foam food containers, and how towns are taking matters into their own hands.
