ALL OF IT is a show about culture and its consumers.
ALL OF IT is a show about culture and context.
ALL OF IT is a show about culture and the culture.
Our aim is to engage the thinkers, doers, makers, and creators, about the what and why of their work. People make the culture and we hope, need, and want the WNYC community to be a part of our show. As we build a community around ALL OF IT, we know that every guest and listener has an opinion. We won’t always agree, but our varied perspectives and diversity of experience is what makes New York City great.
ALL OF IT will be both companion for and curator of the myriad culture this city has to offer. In the words of Cristina De Rossi, anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College, London:
"Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things."
...In other words, ALL OF IT.
Join us for ALL OF IT with Alison Stewart, weekdays from 12:00 - 2:00PM on WNYC.

Bad Host, Good Guests
Alison Stewart invites people to call in to the show and then she ignores what they say completely saying “thank you for your call” and she moves on to the next caller right away. At times it’s awkward at other times it’s insensitive. In addition to this her interview style is stilted and unnatural. Her guests are all high caliber and interesting but she almost always stumbles and seemingly has difficulty truly engaging. I listened daily for more than a year hoping she would improve but she has not, I’m sorry to say that I wish they would replace her. At the very least please stop taking call ins! It’s painful to listen to and I now turn off WNYC when she comes on and return to listening when her show is over.
Alison Stewart’s Show All of It
Alison is a respectful and smart interviewer, who clearly does her research. I like the variety she presents, and how relatable she is. Some of the comments I read should be looked at again; they read as unfair, and even just plain nasty.
