The Exchange offers insights into New Hampshire's, the nation's, and the world's biggest issues with a quality almost unheard of in this day and age--dialogue. This program's commitment to making the community's voices heard it laudable, and the host, Laura Knoy, is one of the most skilled in her field. I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to be informed about the goings-on in the New Hampshire community.
Friday news roundups always late
I listen via podcast and the Friday shows don't post in a timely way. Of course I think this is a great show, otherwise I wouldn't be so sad I can't get the news roundups!
Fantastic host and show
I've been a New England ex-pat for about a decade but still listen to this show. Host is great and makes a true effort at bringing in the voice of the regular people as well as excellent guests! Even shows on topics I'm not interested in end up being interesting! Fantastic work, keep going!
