In this episode:
  • Norman Rockwell's illustrations are iconic images of America, and many of them are also a historical record of the town of Arlington in the 1940s. We talk with Jamie Franklin, curator of the Bennington Museum, about how Rockwell portrayed America and Vermont, and we meet Mary Immen Hall, who sat as a model for four Rockwell paintings.

  • Tax Commissioner Tom Pelham walks us through the property tax loophole that allows information about a person's income to be public.

  • And we visit Porter Music Box Company, where furniture-size music boxes are created with precision and care.
