Machine gun proponents face more scrutiny as more internal communications are released, PFAS plumes continue to baffle local officials, and locals remember where they were when the US was attacked on September 11, 20 years ago. Guests on the show include Noah Asimow at the Vineyard Gazette; George Brennan with the Martha’s Vineyard Times; Jason Graziadei with Nantucket Magazine, Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle, and CAI’s Eve Zuckoff, Jennette Barnes, Daniel Ackerman, Kathryn Eident, and Mike Deehan. Sam Houghton hosts.

Sam Houghton has been with the station since the summer of 2017. Before that, he worked at the Falmouth Enterprise, where he covered local politics.
