A decade ago, the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder was one in 250. Today, it’s closer to one in a hundred. In this weeklong series, NHPR correspondent Sheryl Rich-Kern looks at the impact of autism on families, schools and towns in New Hampshire.
It spans more than 13,000 acres. Nearly a quarter of the state’s population lives within its watershed. In a weeklong series, NHPR’s Environment Reporter Amy Quinton looks at the troubles pollution poses to the health of this critical estuary, and some proposed solutions for returning the Seacoast’s Great Bay to health.
In this weeklong series we look at food and food culture in New Hampshire and beyond. We examine and explain food trends, talk to food producers from around the state, do some cooking, find out how to eat healthy on a budget, and even discover a new source of artillery: the cupcake.
Interviews at the StoryCorps Mobile Booth begin with a question, but the exciting part is the answer. Because, whether it’s from someone we know and love, or from someone we’ve just met, the answer tells us something we didn’t know.
NHPR brought the Mobile Booth to Concord in summer 2007 and to Berlin in summer 2009.

Manchester Central is New Hampshire's largest and oldest public high school, and its most diverse. Refugee and immigrant teenagers from nearly 70 countries attend classes at Central. Independent producer, John Rudolph, and the staff of NHPR spent several months gathering the stories of students and teachers to find out what diversity means to them, culminating in the week-long series Culture Lessons.
