For 30 years, A Lively Experiment has provided insight and analysis of the week's political events both locally and nationally. We ask the hard questions and try to shake them out in a spirited debate with local news makers, opinion leaders and influencers. We dig deep into the local issues that affect Rhode Islanders the most and try to garner insight from economists, political scientists, pundits and elected and appointed officials. Host Jim Hummel keeps the fast paced program moving along as he directs thought provoking questions to the four panelists each and every week.
A Lively Experiment airs on WSBE Rhode Island PBS (36.1) Fridays at 7 p.m., with rebroadcasts on Saturdays at 7 p.m. on WSBE Learn (36.2), and Sundays at noon on WSBE Rhode Island PBS.
