Major funding for Been There/Done That is provided by The Atlantic Philanthropies with additional funding by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.



On Been There / Done That, host-writer Marty Goldensohn weaves interviews, features, audio essays, commentaries and field recordings into a lively, witty, informative and entertaining one hour program.

In one program Marty can take us from Seattle’s Pike Market for a look at "third places" where people gather and create community to a funny conversation with Valerie Harper in New York, from finding an acceptable meal at a greasy spoon to the more serious issues involving saving for retirement, searching for utopia, taking care of body and soul or dealing with aging parents and college bound kids, plus humor, music, film, and more.


Been There / Done That is produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and includes interview guests, commentators and audio essayists from around the country.
