As a writer and a journalist for a few different publications, I find myself putting in miles on my assignments all over Vermont. On these drives, I listen to the radio, tuning the full range of the dial. I don’t listen for content, so much as the ambient sound of a human voice; be it ESPN sports banter or NPR. I was somewhere near St. Johnsbury recently when I heard a broadcast of the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.
