Radio Free Vermont:A Fable of Resistance

Bill McKibben

72 year old radio personality, Vern Barclay, has had enough of the big box stores, mainstream cheap beer, and disregard for global warming that's taking over his community. In an effort to save Vermont from completely losing its soul and culture, he proposes succession. Vern's voice is silenced when a large corporation buys the station he works for and forbids him from speaking negatively about all the changes. Vern with the help of his assistant, Perry, launch their own private radio broadcast. As the two get more popular and bold in their efforts to spread their message, they become fugitives of the law.
