We’d love to hear from you. Let us know how the coronavirus is affecting your life, your family, and your work. What are the challenges? What’s the hardest part? What’s working? What’s not? What questions do you have?  

While we’re all staying home and maintaining social distance, we’re hoping WHQR can be the center of a community conversation.

Please let us know how to get in touch with you, and keep in mind that if you leave a voicemail we might use it on our air or website. Thanks for sharing your story... and stay safe and healthy. 

A dozen or so people, diverse in age, ethnicity, and political leanings, are engaged in a year-long experiment in civil discourse.  Each month, we bring you a conversation with members of the group.  We’re observing how the tone and quality of the conversation changes over the course of the year and whether people with different views will grow to value time with one another. 

It's the second edition of our year-long civil discourse experiment.
