'Brave Little State' Goes To Washington

Jan 4, 2019

As the balance of power shifts in Washington, Brave Little State collected your questions for Vermont Rep. Peter Welch to shape our upcoming episode.

Brave Little State is VPR's people-powered journalism project, where we answer questions about Vermont that have been submitted and voted on by our audience. This month, we're working on a special episode about Rep. Welch, as we try to understand his role in the new Democratic majority in the U.S. House. Here's how our process works:

1. We put a call out to you, our listeners, to share your curiosity. And did you ever: We received over 80 questions!


2. We selected three finalists. We chose the three questions that reflected the dominant themes of your collective curiosity, and put them up for a public vote:

We're going to try to answer as many of your other questions as possible, too. In the meantime, here's how we've kicked off our coverage of Rep. Welch:
