Back in the day the notion of homegrown hooch conjured images of backwoods brewers or bathtubs full of gin.
Not anymore. These days, micro-distilling--its fancier moniker--is less about the buzz and more about the artistry and science that goes into teasing spirits out of locally-sourced fruits, grains and herbs. Plus, it's legal and has been in New Hampshire since 2003.
Now that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, has launched, just how affordable will it make health insurance in New Hampshire? We hosted a special panel featuring Laura Knoy, host of NHPR's The Exchange, along with Tiffany Eddy of the Live Free or Die Alliance for a town hall discussion broadcast live on the web on Tuesday, November 19th.

On-air fund drives are one of the most effective ways to raise money for the station and to gauge the quality of our service. We know that NHPR reaches nearly 200,000 weekly listeners through our broadcast from 12 sites across the Granite State. However, we don’t know who many of those people are, or whether they like what we do. There’s no better way to reach our audience and ask for support and feedback than an on-air drive.
