One of the first U.S. patents went to a Vermonter, and today Vermont has more patents issued per capita than anywhere else in the nation.  We talk with Jackie Calder from the Vermont Historical Society about why the state has long been a hotbed for innovation.  Then, we take a closer look at the long and costly process it takes to become an inventor with patent agent and President of InventVermont, Tom Ference.  And, we also hear from one of Vermont's recent success stories, Steve Luhr, the man behind Hammerhead Sleds. Listen

Also, we continue our Gardening 101 series with Charlie Nardozzi. Listen
