Radio Free Vermont by Bill McKibben
When the new owners of a radio station tell Vermonter, local ale lover and radio personality Vern Barclay he can’t be critical of big media on his show he pushes back and is forced to go underground to plan acts of resistance, including hacking into the sound system of a Bennington Starbucks to broadcast a Radio Free Vermont podcast touting the value of buying local. McKibben's playful fable of a novel is about the value and power of smallness in a globalized world
