Author Susan Clark, historian Paul M. Searls, podcaster Erica Heilman, and UVM professor Cheryl Morse reflect on what Vermont’s rural town meeting tradition can teach us about our nation’s democracy today.
We invite you to listen to “Town Meeting,” a new half-hour show in the award-winning Rumblestrip podcast series. You’ll enjoy sound from the floor of town meetings and some surprising stories from participants who normally don’t share their opinions: Vermont’s town moderators.
“Why it Matters: Civics and Electoral Participation” is an initiative sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Federation for State Humanities Councils.
