Great resource to keep updated!

I listen to this podcast to stay up to date about what is going on in my home state of Rhode Island. I have been living abroad for several years so discovering this podcast allows me to have a little bit of home with me in Sweden. Keep up the great work, the content is often thought-provoking and always nice to listen to! Hejdå!

Good interviews with Rhode Islanders

Bill Bartholomew talks to a variety of artists, politicians, newsmakers, and behind-the-scenes folks in Rhode Island, and it's mandatory listening for me as a Rhode Islander. Keep up the good work!
