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.

Episode 008 - Tom Shafer of Maine Heritage Timber

Tom Shafer shares his story of being laid off from a Wall Street job and then returning to Millinocket, a place where he had childhood roots, to start Maine Heritage Timber, a company that sells wood that has been salvaged from a Katahdin area lake and sold as flooring, siding, and furniture.  Some of the wood dates back as far as 1824.  Tom's is a story of rebirth and redemption: the perfect metaphor for Millinocket as the region looks to the future.
