Where We Live

MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, AND FRIDAYS AT 9:00 AM AND 8:00 PM

Where We Live is a morning talk show and podcast well loved by listeners because we focus on Connecticut: its people, its unique history, its beauty and its challenges. We start local but we take time to explore domestic and international issues and consider how they impact us here at home. We don't just interview policymakers, we talk to people from all over our state and we take your calls, too. 

We want to hear your stories. Join the conversation with host Lucy Nalpathanchil, every day on Where We Live -- radio with a sense of place.
