We're working on a new version of PRX. Want a sneak peek?

Rumble Strip Vermont

Series produced by Erica Heilman

Series image

Erica Heilman invites herself into living rooms, barns, bars, restaurants and offices to talk with people about their lives. Topics are as disparate as parenting, death, road maintenance, and defense attorneys. Although the show primarily features Vermonters, the programs hold universal interest. It's good conversation that takes its time.

Programs are often 'segmentable'. If you find a portion of a show you'd like to air, let me know and I'll segment it and load to PRX.
