If you want a break from political talk, if all that ranting is wearing you out, then you’ll feel right at home with American Variety:  Radio for the rest of us! 

I’m Court Lewis, the host of American Variety Radio™. On American Variety we talk about a wide variety of topics—in fact, anything but politics.  Every week is a different theme, from interviews with amazing people who followed their dream and succeeded, to explorations of history, science, and technology, to in-depth looks at out-of-the-way subjects that I think you’ll find fascinating. 

American Variety Radio is aired throughout the week on the Public Radio stations shown at left. The show is also streamed live on the internet on all these stations. Podcasts are available for download on this site at “Play Recent Shows.”  If you like a refreshing, humorous approach to an eclectic mix of topics, I think you’ll like American Variety. Tune in and check us out!
