VPR's PrEview E-Newsletter: February 24, 2010

Every time the Winter Olympics comes around, I discover my favorite new sport. In 2006, it was curling and snowboard cross. This year it’s ski jumping, thanks in part to a road trip to the Harris Hill Ski Jump Competition in Brattleboro earlier this month. VPR’s Olympic coverage has helped me to appreciate the rich culture of winter sports we have right here in our own backyard, where athletes toil in relative obscurity for the pure love of the sport.

In this edition of prEview, Olympic coverage continues with interviews with medal winners and profiles of the places where they got their start. Also, Governor Jim Douglas joins us Friday on Vermont Edition. We also want to know what issues you’re discussing in your neck of the woods as Town Meeting Day approaches, and in VPR Cooks, our newest staffer shares his recipe for mariner’s cider mussels.
