Relevant local content, terrific editing.

I've listened to a few episodes of Peterborough Currents, and it has been so helpful in informing me about political, social, and cultural issues relevant to my community. I like the fact that there are different 'stories' reported on each episode,, and Ayesha and Will do a great job in finding a common 'theme'. Even issues that I wouldn't normally have much interest in I find myself 'engaged' as I listen to them.
