When the circus came to a rural Vermont town, it was a major event: What young person hasn’t wandered out of the big top after and show and dreamed of running away with the circus? We’ll talk with Circus Smirkus founder Rob Mermin about Vermont’s own circus history and the colorful characters and acts that captured the imaginations of past circus-goers. (Listen)

Plus Dr. Kristine Karlson, a family medicine and sports medicine physician at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center talks about her experiences as both a past Olympic athlete and physician at this year’s games in Beijing. (Listen)

We’ll also take a ride on the Lake Champlain bike ferry. (Listen)
