Podcast-to-table

This show answers all the questions I [a Vermonter] didn't even know I had. The journalism is superb, and the personalities interviewed are real salt of the earth. If you could shop for podcasts at a Farmer's Market, this is what you'd find. The heirloom tomato of northwoods journalism.

Great Little Podcast

I was born, raised and live in Vermont. I have listen to most of the podcasts and find them extremely educational and interesting. There is much information about the State that I never knew. Good work.

A reminder of my roots

I grew up visiting Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, where my mother was raised, and I actually lived just south of my grandparent’s old farm for four years, before moving to the midwest. This podcast is a regular reminder of all the wonders and quirks of Vermont. Ohio could be Indiana could be Illinois. Louisiana could be Alabama. Those places aren’t that different from one another. But Vermont is like no other place. This podcast reflects that. As a bonus, every once in a while, you’ll hear a Vermonter with that brilliant North Country drawl. Brings me right back to Grammy’s summer kitchen!

Great fun in depth show

I caught part of an episode on VPR recently, and am now working my way through old episodes. I’ve lived in Vermont most of my life, and am thoroughly enjoying learning more about my great little state! The interviews and reporting are top notch.

North country

👍🏻 I love your show. I live in upstate New York right across lake Champlain out by the border so our life is a lot like the Vermont lifestyle. You do such great in depth reporting/investigating on what it is too live in the north country thank you.

Northeast Kingdom 3/09 Episode

Why does everyone, including Governor Dean, sound drunk? I didn't have the patience to keep listening, I'm afraid. I don't suppose you'd be willing to fix it?

Not just for Vermonters

I’m a long time Vermont lover, summer camp attendee/employee etc. There’s something about this podcast that captures the particular undefinable quality about Vermont that makes it so special in my experience. It’s answered some of my and my family’s questions (yeah, why *does* VT feel and look different than the states around it?) and questions that I never thought to ask but now seem obvious in retrospect. Love it. Keep it up!

A delight for the ears and the mind.

I am delighted that VPR invested the resources into this project. It has paid off. It is well researched, thoughtful in the production, and brings all the best parts of public radio to an innovative concept. As an ex-pat Vermonter, it asks many questions I've always wondered about. It also gives me a slice of the "sound" of home. This should serve as a model for other NPR member stations and how they can work with their own listeners and community. Thank you, VPR!
