Host Exchange Dispatch: Discovering "Town Meeting" Season, New England Politics and More

Marfa Public Radio and WCAI in Woods Hole, Massachusetts have embarked on a first-of-its-kind host exchange experiment called Radio Hometown: Two Stations, Two Hosts, One Community of Listeners.

Your morning host Travis Bubenik has been filling in for Steve Junker at WCAI, while Steve brings you the news here in West Texas.

In Travis' last dispatch from the Cape, he talks about discovering what "town meeting season" is (hint: it's a big deal), trying to figure out the politics of the place, and how a nuclear power plant in Plymouth, Massachusetts might have some ties to West Texas in the future.
