EG News: The Podcast, Episode 2

by | Jul 20, 2022

We are back with episode 2 of our new podcast. Joannie Hinman and Editor Elizabeth McNamara talk about local candidates who’ve signed up to run for office, the proposed 410-unit housing development planned for Division Road across from Westfield Drive and Moosehorn Road, indictments in the traffic death of Olivia Passaretti, and remembering former town and state elected official, Mark Gee. As always, we end with something quirky from the EG News police log in the past month.

We’d love for you to give it a listen and let us know what you think. Suggestions welcome, including who we might interview in coming episodes. We are hoping to have two episodes a month – one like this, a roundup of the month’s news – and the other, an interview with someone of local interest.

Find the podcast on Spotify HERE or on Anchor HERE.

Produced by Jesse Tolppa at Nova Pro Media.

Elizabeth: I greatly enjoy your podcast for the “behind the scenes” events and personal knowledge of citizens.[Mr. Gee].
It’s very good to hear real reporting, facts, about proposed housing in E.G. as well as the knowledge that if voted down, on appeal, RI will support the builder. [was unaware]
Your voice and injection of humor are both pleasant. I put my phone in its holder, assemble my coffee, toast, fruit, and calcium/vitamin D tabs…and listen to you and Joannie. Great job!
Please [maybe?) include something about Principal Hopkins’s resignation? Worrisome, right before the start of school. As a former principal [EWGSHS “93-’99] I recall the pit in my stomach when a teacher or MY ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL(“97) resigned suddenly at a most inopportune time. [He got a principalship back in his hometown- no grudge, but still unsettling and LOTS of extra work.
Have a great day enjoying this glorious weather.
