This show is part of our ongoing coverage of topics relating to Maine's bicentennial, and is the fourth in our series on the history of Maine.

Both in Maine and nationwide, there has been a longtime debate over whether or not Daylight Saving Time is helpful or necessary.

We’ll discuss the reasons for and against Daylight Saving Time with historians, sleep experts, business owners, farmers, lawmakers and more.
