The Lowdown . WOMR/WFMR
The Lowdown, from the studios of WOMR-FM in Provincetown, focuses on books, science, politics, and social trends. From nationally known authors, politicians, and entertainers to local activists, artists, and eccentrics, The Lowdown presents listeners with informed and lively conversation.
Ira Wood began hosting The Lowdown in 2009 but found that in a seasonal community like Cape Cod, which attracts nationally-known entertainers, politicians, and intellectuals during the summer months, celebrated in-studio guests were scarce after Labor Day. Not a problem, since many of the most provocative authors and thinkers in the country are happy to join him via Skype and telephone.
