So glad I tuned in

I started listening to Connections when someone I knew was featured on an episode and was struck by how great and informative the show is. Evan is an excellent host, who leads an engaging conversation while also giving his guests room to share their expertise. The topics are super informative, and I appreciate how such a fascinating show comes together so often. Upstate NY (and the worldwide listeners of the podcast) is lucky to have a show like this!

So informative!

Love listening to Connections with Evan Dawson! Such a wide variety of topics and Evan is a great interviewer. He, obviously, knows the topic well, asks interesting questions, and presents all points of view.

We’ll researched level headed

A real treat of living in Rochester is this wxxi broadcast. Dawson provides a very thorough and level headed daily conversation about local issues and national news with regional impact. I really do look forward to it every day. Rational, practical, and most importantly, honest reporting.
