In this episode:
  • In 1993 Vermont built its first prison work camp in Saint Johnsbury, and it's still the only one in the state. Many Vermonters seem to embrace the idea, but that doesn't mean they want one in their own backyard. We talk with Corrections Commissioner Rob Hofmann and Saint Johnsbury Town Manager Mike Welch. We also hear from James Hutchinson, chair of the Selctboard in Randolph, a town that rejected a work camp.
  • Jane Lindholm talks with Northeast Kingdom poet Leland Kinsey about farming, Africa and baseball -- some of the themes in his new book, In the Rain Shadow.
  • It's hot and humid outside, but step into a Bikram yoga studio and the conditions are downright sweltering. We visit a class in Burlington that sweats it out for good health.
