NEXT is a weekly radio show and podcast about New England, one of America's oldest places, at a time of change. It's hosted by John Dankosky at WNPR in Hartford, Connecticut.

With New England as our laboratory, NEXT asks questions about how we power our society, how we move around, and how we adapt. It's about trends that provide us challenges and present us with new opportunities. New England has old rules and customs, with well-worn pathways forged centuries ago, and its population is aging fast.
