Political debate season is underway. Mitt Romney spent a good part of last week in Vermont preparing for his series of debates with President Barack Obama. And VPR's own debate series begins Wednesday with the major party candidates for governor. We'll talk to Alfred Snider, UVM professor and director of the World Debate Institute, about what makes for a good debate, and how voters can sift through the rhetoric to make an informed decision.
Also on the program, we visit a goat farm that's trying to expand its operation into caramel. And we look at a club for collectors in the Upper Valley.
Set your reminders and mark your calendar and tune-in for the VPR gubernatorial debate tonight from 7-8:30 p.m.
