240the-selectboard-credit-terry-j-allen_small It's no secret that Erica Heilman and Transom have a bond. She credits Transom with getting her into radio/audio. We look to her for inspiration on how to create artistic work that really matters: to her own small community and to listeners everywhere. That's quite a trick, and one we have always cared about, and are investing in for the future.

This new episode of Rumble Strip (available here and on Transom.org ) is a great example. Erica embedded with her friends for six months as they put on a play, a play about the town they live in, starring the people in the town. It's a murder mystery.

But more than that, it's a trick to get people to hang out, every kind of person in the area, even if they hold opposing beliefs, and make sure they all have a good time together. Because they are neighbors and neighborly connections matter. They may even be key to our survival. And if a mystery dinner theater production helps, terrific.
