The Mike Nowak Show with Peggy Malecki is all about growing things and greening the world.
Listen Sundays, 9-11am. Weekly local radio show focused on gardening and the environment, with lots of humor. Author and master gardener Mike Nowak and cohost Peggy Malecki feature a variety of guests and weatherman Rick DiMaio in live show on 1590 WCGO AM, also available in podcast on 1590WCGO.com, MikeNowak.net and podcast apps, and streaming live on 1590WCGO.com and the TuneIn and Stitcher radio apps.
You won’t find a deeper shade of green in any medium. Mike and Peggy begin with gardening and go on to the environmental issues that are of concern to all of us. Yes, you can find out how to keep your roses healthy and hear other gardeners rant about deer and rabbits. But you’ll also learn about sustainable growing practices and local food. You’ll listen to some of the most knowledgeable people in the country talk about the effects of a newly variable climate and the ways we need to adapt to and mitigate the changes we’re seeing.
Mike and Peggy are great interviewers, approaching their subjects with all the serious they deserve and all the humor they allow. And meteorologist Rick DiMaio contributes a scientific but also practical and personal view of weather and climate.
