Brave Little State

What if you could decide what stories Vermont Public Radio should be covering, before they're even assigned?

That's the idea behind Brave Little State, a monthly podcast where you ask the questions, you decide what VPR investigates, and then you work with us to find the answers.

So tell us: What question do you have about Vermont, our region or its people that you want us to explore? Submit it below, or leave us a short voicemail at 802-552-4880.

Our latest episode, available now, and broadcasting on Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m. during All Things Considered: How Is Climate Change Affecting Vermont Right Now?

The winning question for our next episode: "What has drawn so many writers and poets to Vermont? Who are some of Vermont's most well-known writers both past and present?" — Georgeann Faller, Thetford

In the inaugural episode of Brave Little State, VPR's new, people-powered journalism podcast, we tackle a question about the history of the Vermont accent, and a question about a strange "thing" at the Waterbury rest area.

Most decisions about the news you hear and read and watch every day are made by somebody else. But what if you could make some of those decisions? 

That's the idea behind Brave Little State, a new podcast from Vermont Public Radio.
