What do Dead Bodies, Politicians & Quantum Physicists Have in Common?
A Closer Look Radio with Pam Atherton!
Award-Winning Talk Show goes Worldwide every Thursday on
WORLDWIDE–You never know what direction the lively conversation will take on A Closer Look with Pam Atherton. It might be about baseball with Emmy-winning writer Ken Levine. It might be about foreign etiquette with New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson. Whatever it’s about, you can now hear the award-winning talk show on the internet, Thursday afternoons at 1 PT/4ET on, no matter WHERE you are!
Heard originally on terrestrial radio stations in the United States, A Closer Look is moving into the internet arena in order to widen the reach of the show. “The guests and subjects we explore are proven to be of interest to people throughout the nation, and even across the world,” says show producer Nicholas Beatty. “Research has shown that over 50% of internet users consume streaming media and that the proportion of Americans who have listened to radio stations online has nearly quadrupled in three years. It’s the way of the future, and we want to be right in the middle of it.”
Whether it’s a conversation about how they created the realistic dead bodies for the series Six Feet Under, or how and why Dr. Arthur Agatston created the South Beach diet, A Closer Look is life changing radio. Really. It’s an internet radio show that explores ideas, trends and people in a search for answers and understanding, which in turn creates empowerment.
Winner of 16 broadcasting awards, journalist Pam Atherton has been hosting the show for over ten years. “I believe I ask the questions that everybody is thinking. I’m not afraid to say… ‘But why?’ Or ‘that doesn’t make sense to me.’ I have a deep curiosity about life and everything in it.”
Through the years the show has welcomed such diverse guests as performer Cher, vacuum mogul David Oreck, quantum physicist Mani Bhaumik and Senator Ted Kennedy.
“If we talk to a political figure, it’s not to talk politics,” Pam says. “It’s to find out what’s behind the slogan and the spin. It’s to find out what kind of a person they are; where they came from and what they’ve experienced. Talking politics is not my arena. There are far more experienced talking heads out there than me!”
Guests scheduled for upcoming shows include philanthropist Patricia Kennedy, psychologist Dr. Susan Bartell, alleged jewel thief Walter T. Shaw and make-over guru Christopher Hopkins. Information about the show, the guests, upcoming events and host Pam Atherton can be found at the website
