About Rumble Strip Vermont

_DSC0221

On Rumble Strip Vermont, you’ll hear from artists and criminals, taxidermists and soccer moms, lawyers and waitresses. Erica Heilman invites herself into Vermonters’ homes to find out what they know, what they hate, who they love, what they’re afraid of, and what makes them more like you than you’d realized. It’s surprising conversation that sounds like Vermont, and 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. She has received grants from WGDR, Goddard College and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Prior to her work in audio, Erica worked in documentary television in New York City. She produced programming for WNET, HBO and ABC News.

    It’s great. I love the interviews. I heard about your deer stories on Front Porch Forum. I saved the site to play it for my son when he came in from hunting. Thank you. I keep going back to listen to more interviews. I love those voices. It’s good the way you let people loose to tell you what they want to tell you.

    I love the shows. They give me an entirely new perspective on Vermont and the people who live there.
