Ira Wood

Ira_Wood_300_cropped_head_shotPoliticians, writers, scientists, and trend-makers, from on-Cape Cod and off, join Ira Wood every Tuesday at 12:30 PM for 30-minute interviews as eclectic as his resume. Not a journalist but a highly praised author, a former publisher and elected official who spent twelve years at the helm of a Cape Cod town, Ira brings his sense of humor, political savvy, and deep curiosity to topics as diverse as green burials, drug addiction, Joseph P. Kennedy, Moby Dick, and Barbara Streisand.

Capping the WOMR News on most Fridays Ira unleashes what the New York Times calls his, “special gift for heart warming comedy,” in 5-minute essays a la Andy Rooney called Matters of Opinion. Connecting with the inner-curmudgeon in us all he goes off on his least-favorite night of the year (New Year’s Eve), the Cape Cod Evacuation Route (there is none), a suggested tax on inconsiderate people, and an assortment of ‘modest proposals’ that take aim at the state of humanity in the 21 st century.
