The Breakdown with Bob Aikin

Thursday Mornings at 7:20, during Morning Edition

Each week, Bob Aikin sat down with KETR GM Jerrod Knight to break down some item or other in the news. Topics generally ranged from sports to movies to history to politics, and back again.

Don't miss a single episode of The Breakdown - take the podcast with you wherever you go, and catch up when you can!

Update June 14th, 2012: KETR is saddened to report that Bob Aikin passed on the afternoon of Wendesday, June 13th, 2012. As requests mount for deeper audio archives, we'd like to point you to the JUKEBOX, an audio archive from a previous iteration of ketr.org, which was updated in October of 2011.
