On its debut, Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson delivers SCANDAL...not just ABC’s hit TV series, but inside real DC politics. White House, Senate, and corporate communications veteran Kathy McKiernan joins Robinson to sort fact from fiction in the world of high stakes crisis management.  Listeners tell why they’re riveted by actor Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope. Penn State professor Paul C. Taylor and television host Judge Penny Brown Reynolds join Stephanie to take on the passion, the politics and the controversy.

Why is SCANDAL lighting up both black and white audiences? What does it say about race and gender in the 21st century? Does the steamy drama have anything to do with how our government actually runs? What current real life Washington scandals could use Olivia Pope’s team?

Time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson leads the discussion and invites call-ins to share honest, direct opinions. Our Fresh Copy news segment breaks down topical conversations with a unique take on weekly headlines before Robinson wraps the show with her signature “In Love and Hope" reflections. Tune in for hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.
