Making It

Aug 7, 2014

The “maker movement” is taking hold in Vermont. That's a somewhat odd name that captures technology, design, innovation and a strong DIY spirit. On the next Vermont Edition, we talk about how communities of “makers” are using high-tech tools to solve problems, create art and start a conversation about technology in our lives. Our guests are Jenn Karson of Vermont Makers and Doug Webster of the Champlain Mini-Maker Faire.

Also in the program, state Representative Sarah Buxton from Tunbridge. In the days after the death of Vermont Law School professor Cheryl Hanna by suicide, Buxton has begun raising awareness of the depression that Hanna suffered from by discussing her own experience with the illness.
