The Maine Show

The Maine Show Podcast was launched in August 2015. The goal of the show is to share the stories behind the people, events, and ideas driving the state of Maine forward. For hundreds of years Mainers have come together around campfires, fishing holes, wood stoves, and kitchen tables to tell stories. At its purest form, that is what The Maine Show is all about. New episodes are launched each Tuesday morning at 7:00 am EST.
