As the Northeast prepares for the Quadricentennial
Celebration of Lake Champlain; one man wants to make sure the celebrations
don’t bypass Native Americans. Abenaki
scholar Fred Wiseman joins us to discuss his new film, "1609: The Other Side of
History" about the European discovery of the lake from a Native perspective.(Listen)

Also, Swanton is talking about whether or not to demolish a
dam owned by the city. It used to be an
old hydro plant and some residents would like to see it become one again. Burlington
Free Press reporter Candy Page joins us to talk about how towns like Swanton
are taking a fresh look at hydro power. (Listen)

And we travel to the Southeast river town of Westminster,
as part of our series of postcards from Vermont
