Do you live on the Seacoast? I want to know you! Join me at a pub near you for a reporter parlay of sorts.

Got a story you think I should be covering? Tell me about it. Want to know more about NHPR and the stories we do? I’ll tell you all about it.

Come get a bite, have a drink, and most importantly, bring along all your public radio nerd friends! This is a casual event to share ideas and make connections. It will not be recorded.
