Bernie Sanders: The View From Away
Bernie Sanders has proven his popularity in Vermont with lopsided election victories in his campaigns for the U.S. House and Senate. But can he turn that into a successfulpresidential campaign? On the next Vermont Edition, we hear perspectives on Bernie Sanders from outside Vermont with political reporters from Iowa, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C. who will be covering the early presidential contests. Our guests are Jonathan Topaz of Politico, Kathie Obradovich of the Des Moines Register and Josh Rogers of New Hampshire Public Radio.

And, our colleagues at VPR Classical help us dive into the history of how musical notation was created. VPR Classical's James Stewart explains how music was set down in writing in the first installment of Classical Timeline.
