Erica Heilman invites herself into living rooms, barns, bars, restaurants and offices to hear stories from Vermonters. It’s like a party with your neighbors except you don’t have to worry if it’s going to rain or if there will be enough drinks. The goal is to make programs that sound like where we live, and feature voices we’re not hearing on the radio. Join us for good conversation that takes its time.
Erica’s independent radio work has aired on NPR’s Day to Day, Hearing Voices, SOUNDPRINT and on major public radio affiliates across the country. She has taught all aspects of documentary production through the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury, Vermont. Prior to her work in audio, Erica worked in documentary television in New York City. She produced programming for WNET, HBO and ABC News.
You can listen to this show right here on the site, but it’s much better listening if you put the show on your i-Thing and take it with you. In your car, or on a walk, or in the garden, or making dinner. You can do that by signing up for a free, automatic download from iTunes or Stitcher. Both those options are on the Subscribe page here on the site. If you can’t figure out how to do this, email me and I’ll walk you through it. Also, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you’ll receive notices whenever new shows are added to the site. I don’t share these emails with anyone, and you won’t get emails very often. Sadly. Because I’m not very fast at making new shows.
And please leave a show comment. It’s nice to hear from you!
