In this episode:


  • Several recent police incidents have put a spotlight on the use of stun guns by law enforcement, and raised criticism about how police use Tasers to subdue individuals. We talk with civil libertarians and law enforcement officers about how stun guns and Tasers should be used, and whether a statewide policy should be in place for police.

  • Vermont novelist Jeffrey Lent on his new book, "A Peculiar Grace." He talks with Jane Lindholm about his characters and the power of an ambiguous ending.

  • The sounds of music boxes fill the air as we visit the Porter Music Box Company in Randolph.

  • Links mentioned in the program:
