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.

Election Day Edition: Nate Silver at the MSF (just the politics)

In this Election Day podcast edition, Nate Silver's political analysis from the Maine Sciences Festival is presented without interruption and stripped down from the other content during his live chat on stage with MSP host Ben Sprague.  This podcast episode was recorded in March 2016 when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were not yet their parties's official nominees, but much of the analysis and prediction holds true to this day.
