the anything and everything talk and entertainment TV show



Potluck is back in the studio!

FPA and Potluck are now high def on COX Channel 1010! Still working on FIOS.

Hi! I'm the producer of the show, Gayle Yiotis, and no, Potluck is not a cooking show (although that doesn't mean we won't have cooking segments), it's a talk show. I named it Potluck because you just never know what we'll dish up next on this show. We will interview interesting people from all walks of life in the DC Metropolitan area, and even beyond.

Please scroll down to "Update" for news of upcoming shows.

Many thanks to Laura Hartman, one of Potluck's hosts, who kept Potluck going by interviewing guests via Zoom during the past months. We look forward to more interviews by Laura from time to time.

Potluck welcomes K Patrick Glover who will hopefully conduct interviews from time to time for Potluck. Patrick is a Baltimore based writer of mystery fiction and the owner and publisher (along with his wife, Amanda) of Roxton Press, a small press company with big plans. He spent thirty years in retail management before retiring and turning his attentions towards writing professionally. His interests include a diverse spectrum of the arts and social justice issues, as well as politics and history. Potluck represents his first work in television and he is enjoying it immensely. He looks forward to bringing you a wide variety of fascinating discussions.

Meera Narasimhan who was Potluck's host for many years, will soon take on the role of producer for Potluck. She will also host shows. And we are so happy to have her back! Meera has worked in the legal, educational, journalistic and performing arts fields. The acting bug caught her more than four decades ago and has gone viral in her blood now. She has acted in many community theater and professional productions in the DC-metro area for three decades and has been in a few off-off-Broadway plays. She has also acted in numerous feature films, short films, TV shows and in a music video. Meera hosts this monthly TV show “Potluck” on FPA channel airing in the DC metro area.
