As financial aid decisions are on the horizon for many families, we talk with the head of VSAC about paying for college, and how Vermont’s key student assistance organization is fairing in the financial markets. Also, how Calvin Coolidge capaigned (or didn’t) for the presidency, and a food hub may help keep growing food manufacturers local.
This President’s Day we turn back to our Founding Fathers and explore their religious beliefs. Gary Kowalski, of Burlington’s First Unitarian Universalist Society, has written a new book on the subject. Also, presidential historian Willard Sterne Randall joins us to talk about President Calvin Coolidge’s 1924 campaign. And, VPR’s own Robert Resnik sings a famous Coolidge campaign tune.
