Writers & Company

Writers & Company offers an opportunity to explore in-depth the lives, thoughts and works of remarkable writers from around the world.

"Your show is the radio-listening highlight of my week!" writes one Writers & Company listener. "Thank you for introducing me to some wonderful writers and works that I might otherwise have missed."

Writer/broadcaster Eleanor Wachtel has hosted Writers & Company from its inception. She brings her thoughtfulness and wit to conversations with such distinguished writers as Salman Rushdie, Susan Sontag, Martin Amis and Isabel Allende. Eleanor draws out not only the intellectual, but also the personal, lives of her guests.

Also, through specials, such as our series on South African and Islamic writers, Writers & Company takes its listeners to different countries and cultures. An experienced arts journalist, Eleanor Wachtel is also the host of CBC Radio One's daily magazine program The Arts Today.
