On the last mono-sequential day until January 1, 2101, we’ll hear about orbifolds, phyloogenetics and Math-O-Vision as we
discuss practical applications of math, hear what the state police are doing to lower the number of traffic fatalities and we head out to find the perfect Christmas Tree.
We hear a lot of
stories about Christmas, but some are special enough that they stick with us
from one year to another. VPR’s Susan Keese first told us about Russ Tarbell of
Pawlet two years ago, as he went on a special Christmas tree mission on Mount Tabor
Christmas tree growing is big business in our region. We look into how it’s grown, where our trees end up, and how to choose the perfect fir. Also, a look at different perspectives to the Hanukkah story, and where to catch performances of Handel’s Messiah.
