About Weekend America
Curious, Lively, Unexpected
From 2004 to 2009, Weekend America was a place for curious, lively conversations, unexpected stories, and the most compelling ideas about what was happening in America each weekend.
Each week, host John Moe invited listeners to a lively conversation about the issues of the week, the arts, and public affairs. Weekend America featured material from talented independent producers and public radio stations around the country.
We took some time on the weekends to see the world through each other's eyes. We walked in someone else's shoes a bit, and went to places we wouldn't otherwise go.
Weekend America was funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Minnesota Public Radio.
John Moe was the host of Weekend America from August of 2008 until the show ended in January 2009. Prior to that, he was a freelance contributor for several years and served as Senior Reporter on the program. His radio work has appeared on several national public radio programs. John was the staff writer for NPR's news satire program "Rewind" and hosted several public radio programs dealing with the arts, politics, business, and technology at public radio station KUOW in Seattle. His writing has appeared in several books, McSweeneys.net, The Seattle Times, and MSN.
