The Sunday Special tucks in at the dinner table

dinner_plate.jpg

Our weekly showcase of public radio specials considers the dinner table, and all that it inspires. Sunday afternoon at 5.
On this week's KSUT Sunday Special, we present the storytelling show Re:veal, with a show called “The Dinner Table.”

From the show's description:

Producer Jonathan Goldstein from This American Life made every girl he ever dated watch the home movie of his family's Rosh Hashanah dinner he made when he was 17. He hoped that seeing his family life on film might make the women more sympathetic to his shortcomings

 

Once a month in New York, a particular group of friends gathers to dine at various restaurants around Manhattan... nude. Re:sound host Gwen Macsai has this report from her first Clothing Optional Dinner at a restaurant called Dorian's.

 

Lorelei Harris of Documentary on One [RTÉ Radio 1] brings us the story of five very fat women meeting to feast and discuss their relationship with food, in the piece Dreaming Of Fat Men.

 

And Jennifer Nathan of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies brings us A Square Meal, Regardless. When Cedric Chambers and John Gallagher met by chance 45 years ago, neither imagined that they’d be caring for each other into old age. But after John’s wife passed away and his children moved across the country, John turned to Cedric when he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Together they faced the end of his life.

Join us for this Re:veal special, The Dinner Table, on the KSUT Sunday Special, Sunday afternoon at 5:00 on KSUT.
