On Saturday, June 10 at 11 a.m. VPR hosted a new, streamlined version of the annual Commentator Brunch at our recently expanded Colchester facility on the theme: SLEUTH! UNCOVERING THE TRUTH!
After a buffet brunch in VPR's new café and lobby, guests took their seats in Studio One for readings from 13 commentators. And while many thought the perspectives offered might be all politics all the time, in fact, treatments ranged from thoughts on the nature of truth and the importance of truth in journalism, to seeking the identity of a biological parent and searching for lost asparagus.
In order of appearance, the program audio includes:
