[Rebroadcast] #17 Information Over or Underload?

June 28, 2018

With the news from the Supreme Court this week, we decided to rerun how we are trying to stay sane during this moment of history. We have a new episode coming next week! 

 

Are you rage-screaming into a pillow every day, or happily moving through each day (mostly) blissfully unaware of the newest presidential gaffe? Gretchen and Kelley talk about how they manage the influx of insane news.

When your state's motto is literally "VACATIONLAND," people have questions about traveling here. While most people think "Lobsters and Lighthouses," there is SO much more to visiting Maine. Melanie is the grant manager for the Maine Highlands, a beautiful region of the state that is anchored by our hometown, Bangor, and includes one of the endpoints of the Appalachian Trail, Mt. Katahdin. Melanie shares her best tips and secret gems of the Highlands.
