Democrat Matt Dunne served in the Vermont Legislature for 11 years before he ran for lieutenant governor in 2006. He lost that campaign, but now the Google employee is in the Democratic primary race for governor. We talk with Matt Dunne about why he wants to be governor, the top issues he wants to raise in the 2010 campaign, and how he'll navigate a field of five Democratic candidates for the nomination. Listen

Also in the program, the life and times of the zebra mussel. The invasive species has been a nuisance in Lake Champlain for years, and last month scientists theorized it may have exacerbated the decline of the Champlain Bridge. We talk with lake scientist Mary Watzin, director of the Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Laboratory at UVM, about the life cycle and impact of zebra mussels on the lake environment. Listen
