Here are the WMRA program specifics:

The Mothnew to WMRA, is now on at 8pm Thursdays and 1pm Sundays. Funny. Sad. True. The Moth is an acclaimed story driven show that starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Moth storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. The storyteller and the audience embark on a high-wire act of shared experience which is both terrifying and exhilarating.

Freakonomics Radionew to WMRA, is now on at 3pm Thursdays and 12pm Sundays. Hosted by celebrated "Freakonomics" co-author Stephen Dubner, Freakonomics Radio ferrets out connections between seemingly unrelated things. The program explores the riddles of everyday life and the weird wrinkles of human nature-from cheating and crime to parenting and sports-using the tools of economics to explore real-world behavior.

Snap Judgmentnew to WMRA, is now on at 8pm Tuesdays and 2pm Sundays. Snap Judgment is the storytelling phenomenon electrifying audiences nationwide. Created by Glynn Washington and co-produced by WNYC Studios, Snap delivers a raw, intimate, musical brand of narrative - daring audiences to see the world through the eyes of another. It's storytelling, with a beat.
