Westport is full of interesting people. Every day since 2009, I’ve told their stories in “06880.”
But hey, this is 2021. It’s time to spread my wings. Let’s add some audio and video to those stories!
Thanks to a partnership with the Westport Library — and their state-of-the-art Verso Studios — today we launch “06880: The Podcast.”
Every other Monday, we’ll release a new casual conversation with one of the many people who make this such an intriguing town. We’ll talk about what got (and kept) them here; what they love (and don’t like) about this place; what they do, how they do it, and what it all means here and in the world.
My first guest is Tom Scarice. Nine months into his gig as superintendent of schools, he chats candidly, passionately (and with humor) about his decision to sign on in the middle of a pandemic; his goals for the district; students and staff today, and how education will change in the future.
I’ll post a new podcast every other Monday, at noon. It will be available simultaneously on the Westport Library website.
Watch or listen at your leisure. Enjoy “06880: The Podcast” — the newest way in which “Westport meets the world.”
