How can every citizen have a voice? Town meeting each spring in Vermont is central to its identity as a little state that does things differently. But what happens when it needs to change during a pandemic? Or when it changes because Vermont itself has changed? This podcast episode explores democratic traditions in Vermont, how they were once used to encourage democracy worldwide, and what they mean for the voice of people today.
Before Your Time is produced in partnership with Vermont Humanities.
