my weekly radio show & podcast

SINCE SPRING 2010, I’ve been taping a 25ish-minute weekly public-radio gardening program with my neighbors down the road in Sharon, Connecticut, at Robin Hood Radio, “the smallest NPR station in the nation.”

The show, called “A Way to Garden With Margaret Roach” (how original!), is available free as a podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify and most every other podcast app (the clickable icons below can get you to the most popular ones).

The show has won three silver medals from the Garden Writers Association of America (now GardenComm). Apparently I have overseas admirers, too, not just in the U.S. It was named a top podcast by Fionnuala Fallon of “The Irish Times” in January 2020, and a “top-5” garden show by “The Guardian,” alongside some from the BBC. “Margaret Roach is a household name in America, where her long-running, award-winning public-radio podcast A Way to Garden has achieved cult status,” Fallon wrote.

Every week, a fully illustrated companion transcript runs on this website, loaded with links for more information. A sampling of recent shows and popular ones are displayed below, or browse the entire archive at this link.
