When other morning shows are doomy and gloomy

I turned to this morning news show during the pandemic when others became too overly negative to wake up to. This it a welcome and pragmatic way to gain daily news and insight into Vermont life. Looking forward to every daily episode. Thank you!

Good info but too progressive

This podcast is great if you are interested in Vermont’s daily news!
I myself do not live in Vermont but I’ve always been fascinated by it.
However, if you listen to this podcast you’ll find that it has a very progressive lean to it, so bear that in mind when listening.
