Open Minds

Wednesdays, noon Open minds is a chat show hosted by two informal but well informed bearded men, namely Bernard Korbman and Dominic Carter. Both have walked very different paths in life, but have ended up in the same place, at the same time, with the same Jew-ish sense of humour. Is that a coincidence? We think not. Or maybe we do. Find out the answer to this and many other conundrums (or is it conundra?) by tuning in to this quirky but very enjoyable show. They are joined every week by a special guest to discuss a variety of issues such as politics, art, music, philosophy, religion, current affairs and culture. These wide ranging topics are approached with curiosity, respect and dry wit. And above all, an open mind.
