The Place We Live
   With your host: Marc Matheson

The Place We Live is a live radio interview program created by Marc Matheson as a mode of sketching the West Marin landscape through the lives of the people who live or work here.

Inspired by "West Marin Review", a local art and literature journal, The Place We Live features live conversation with a diverse range of local folk - writers, poets and artists, students, teachers and parents, farm and ranch workers, shopkeepers and townspeople - at the intersection of not just literature and art, but also work and learning, and the appreciation of artfulness in daily life.

The program also addresses community and public affairs topics relevant to life in West Marin, including education.

The Place We Live airs live on alternate Saturday mornings at 11:00, for an hour. Archived recordings of the show are available for free download and sharing within a few hours. (Scroll down for the archives.)
