PhoneCall (877) 929-9673 toll-free with your language questions

    Calls to the (877) 929-9673 phone number are toll-free in the U.S. and Canada. You may also call (619) 800-4443, for which long-distance rates apply. If you prefer, ring us up by the Skype user name waywordradio. In London or the rest of the United Kingdom you may call 020 3286 5677. In Mexico City or the rest of Mexico, call 55 8421 8567.

How it works

    The show airs at many different times around the the United States, so when you call you will hear a greeting, and then the system will record your message. We do it this way to give everyone everywhere an equal chance of getting on the show.

    Be sure to give your full name, phone number, and location. Be as detailed as possible.

    Later, we’ll listen to everything, and then a producer will call you back if we’d like to get you on the show. We may use your recorded message on the air or on this website, but we’ll always remove your contact information.

    We get thousands of calls a year, but don’t let that stop you from calling every time you think of a question. You may become one of the chosen!

    Martha, Grant, and producer Stefanie Levine also read and keep every listener email message. Include your full name, location, and how you’d like to be contacted. If we’d like to get you on the program or use your email in some other way, we’ll contact you.

    We try to respond to everyone, but because we receive many thousands of emails each year (and each year more than the last), it would take every waking hour to give a full response to each of them. If you’re impatient, ask your fellow listeners on our discussion forums.

    Even if you don’t hear back from us right away, know that we are listening to and reading everything you send. Your thoughts, opinions, and stories are all used to help plan our shows, our seasons, and to shape the whole program itself.
