This Week on Maine Calling -

Mon Feb 19 – MAINE’S HOUSING SHORTAGE: OVERVIEW (Presidents’ Day rebroadcast)

Maine Calling is covering the state housing crisis with a special yearlong series: “The Cost of Living: Maine’s Housing Shortage.” We rebroadcast our first program in the series; it was an overview of the many housing challenges that Maine faces, as well as some solutions. (Original broadcast January 22, 2024)


The legislative session is underway. Bills up for discussion range from housing to gun control to reproductive rights and paramilitary training. Maine Public's political reporters offer an update on which bills may make it to Gov. Mills’ desk and which may be DOA.


Maine has a statewide plan in place for significantly greater use of electric vehicles in the years ahead. We’ll learn how the EV charging network will be built out in Maine, and we’ll discuss challenges such as cold-weather battery life, home charging and range anxiety.


Congresswoman Chellie Pingree joins us to discuss the latest news from the Nation’s Capital, including funding for the war in Ukraine, the conflict in Gaza, House debates over short- and long-term funding issues, and immigration policy.


What do you do for fun? What interesting hobbies and activities are you involved with? Maine Calling's series, "Passions & Pastimes," aims to highlight many of these pursuits throughout the year. We'll talk about how this series came about and which topics we plan to cover. And we'll hear from some of our Maine Public colleagues about their favorite pastimes.
