The Saturday show bring you a spectacular mix of the best of Word of Mouth. On this week's show:

  • Joyce Maynard stops by the studio to talk about her new novel After Her, and why the last thing she feels is shame when it comes to her decision to discuss her relationship with J.D. Salinger.
  • Eating Trader Joe's Trash. New Hampshire native and documentary filmmaker Alex Mannis' film Spoils gives a fly on the dumpster account of Brooklynites who forage in the urban jungle of grocery store cast offs.

  • Hummus may be somewhat of a mainstay here in the Northeast, but can it rise to the holiest of snacking triumphs and be the number one snack at everyone's next NFL party? Sabra hummus is banking on fans choosing to have chickpeas alongside chicken wings. Duane Stanford is a reporter with Bloomberg News where he wrote about hummus becoming the official dip of the NFL.
  • From the archives, A "Writers on a New England Stage"  interview with the late author Elmore Leonard, hosted by Laura Knoy.
