About Syndication

Each week on City Arts & Lectures, Academy Award-winning actor Linda Hunt introduces public radio listeners to a unique series of programs with some of the most distinguished cultural figures of our day. City Arts & Lectures brings artists, critics, performers, and social observers together with a variety of skilled interviewers for on-stage conversations in San Francisco’s historic Nourse Theater. The theater audience also participates in asking questions of our guests.

Highlights from City Arts & Lectures’ most recent season of more than fifty programs include Maria Bamford, Ibram X. Kendi, Zadie Smith, Sally Rooney, Patti Smith, Pico Iyer, and many more.

Produced in association with KQED Public Radio, each program is an hour in length and flexible rights allow stations to use the series on a weekly or occasional basis, free of charge. Each season offers more than fifty programs from which to choose. For more information on how to add us to your radio schedule, please contact:
