Greta Rybus for NHPR

Inspired by host Sam Evans-Brown’s environmental reporting and his passion for the outdoors, New Hampshire Public Radio’s new program Outside/In launches its first season of five hour-long shows on Friday, April 22nd at 3 p.m. The show will air for five weeks and can also be heard on Saturdays at 2 p.m. at Sundays at 10 p.m. 

Sara Plourde, NHPR

Outside/In - Fridays at 2 pm and Saturdays at 3 pm (rebroadcast);  limited run

From NHPR comes an environment show like no other, a show about the natural world and how we use it. Outside/In is inspired by the outdoors, but isn’t just for the outdoorsy. You'll hear about a man possessed by a dock, and one tasked with stirring romance...in moose. A town tangling with trees that stink, and one that could well be the model for the electric grid of the future. Tune in for our five-episode debut season, running April 22 through May 21.

As NHPR’s archive intern this summer, my primary responsibility has been to listen back to some of the station’s oldest audio. I take copious notes about the stories I hear – and when I find one especially interesting, it gets shared on our blog.
