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.

Our latest episode, available now, and broadcasting on Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. during All Things Considered: Legislation vs. Investigation: How Is Rep. Peter Welch Balancing His Work? 

The winning question for our next episode: "Why does Vermont have such a housing crunch? I've been hearing about it forever, so why isn't it getting better?" — Peter Kerson, Middlesex, Vt. & Norfolk, Va.

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.
