New Hampshire has 221 towns, thirteen cities, 1.3 million residents, and countless stories to tell.
But while many of these tales are what you'd expect from a small community-based state, where one person really can make a difference, don't be fooled: Small-town politics can be just as rough as those in the big city, and new ways aren't always greeted kindly.
Here at NHPR, our reporters have a sharp eye out for these stories; the lovely slices of life, the not-so-lovely, and the local news that doesn't often make headlines. These are the stories that keenly illustrate our state's community life.
Today's show is a special broadcast featuring some of our favorites examples of these stories, and we are joined by the NHPR reporter behind many of them, Todd Bookman.
