About the Program

Welcome to The Dinner Party Download™ - an hour-long celebration of culture, food, and conversation designed to help you dazzle your friends at this weekend's get-together. In every episode you'll learn a joke, bone up on an odd bit of history and then wash it down with a themed cocktail. Or you will meet an artist of note (say, Spike Lee or Willie Nelson), learn the answers to your burning etiquette questions, savor an emerging food trend, and hear your new favorite song. Plus, unconventional wisdom from hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam.
