Middlebury Five-O: Sherry Greifzu

A powerful show, talking with the Interim Executive Director and Clinical Director of Addison County Home Health and Hospice about the organization, focusing especially upon advanced directives – documents that allow people to make decisions about medical treatments and interventions they might receive toward the end of their life. Sherry describes how composing such a document can promote a process in keeping with your values, and relieve stress and conflict among those you care for, clarifying your wishes as they struggle to negotiate profound decisions in a time of tremendous grief. Though the topic is challenging, the discussion is vibrant and touches upon issues we should all be considering and talking about, no matter our age or health. Recorded 6/23/16.

Middlebury Five-O: Peter Galbraith

A riveting interview with this two time Vermont State Senator, accomplished
international diplomat and gubernatorial candidate. Peter talks about his
dramatic and profoundly significant work, striving for peace and human
rights in some of the most volatile places around the world, such as Iraq,
Croatia, and Afghanistan. He speaks about his deep connection with
Pakistan’s former president, Benazir Bhutto, touching upon how her
dedication and heroism have inspired him – and how his experience as a
negotiator on the global stage has informed his candidacy, imbuing it with
breadth and compassion and driving his goals, from his plans to increase
the minimum wage to his vision of healthcare in the State, to his desire to
minimize the influence of special interests in Vermont politics.

Middlebury Five-O: The Rotary Club

A rich and jaunty introduction to the Middlebury Rotary Club, and to the
world of Rotary. A panel of esteemed guests talk about some of the projects
this service organization has created, funded and engineered, from epic,
global concerns, such as the eradication of polio, to local endeavors, such
as Green Up Day and posting US flags throughout the community on
significant days of recognition. The guests relate their various paths into
the Club, all compelled by a basic commitment to positively impact their
communities and the world – sharing their humor, their passion and their
infectious optimism. Recorded 5/5/16.

Middlebury Five-O: Beth Dow & Howard Kelton

Two local dignitaries with a tremendous breadth of experience with the old Middlebury Town Office building talk about its rich history at this pivotal moment, as it awaits demolition. Howard describes attending school in the structure, relating what it was like returning after the devastating fire that ravaged the upper story in 1954. Beth talks about her many years of service to the Town spent in the building and the huge array of organizations that have been housed within its red brick walls – including the Police Department, consigned to the dank basement. A fascinating, bitter-sweet glimpse into this municipal landmark that has for so long stood at the center of the Middlebury community. Recorded 4/28/16.

An uplifting show drawing upon a rare and vibrant resource – a positive, hopeful vision of a sustainable future. Taborri shares his view of a culture shifting toward responsible consumption while embracing renewable forms of energy production, suggesting we have the technological capacity and are developing the social and political will to realize these increasingly imperative aspirations. While acknowledging the profound challenges, the message is one of sober and pragmatic optimism. Recorded 4/21/16.

Middlebury Five-O: Paul Reynolds of the Vermont Mozart Festival

A celebrity guest appearance by the eminent and devilishly charming musical genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (aka Paul Reynolds)! Wolfy talks about the revivified and reinvented Vermont Mozart Festival, which is drawing young instrumental talent from the far reaches of the nation and gathering it in Vermont to provide epic performances of some of his most beloved work – furthering the careers of these fledgling virtuosos while delighting us music-loving natives. Of special note are some of the fabulous new approaches being explored by the VMF – including a yoga-fused Mozart spa and Mozart madness, which has something to do with basketball (the favorite sport of Amadeus, I’m assured). Recorded 4/14/16.
