All this week, Smart Talk features the Top Stories of 2017 on Smart Talk by looking back at several of the important issues that got the public’s attention throughout the year. They include the issues that were raised by President Trump and the Trump Administration, the opioid crisis and pipelines being constructed in Central Pennsylvania.
We begin the series Tuesday though with one of the popular features on the program this year — Smart Talk Road Trips. Throughout the year, Smart Talk has traveled throughout the region and even outside WITF’s listening area to broadcast live and meet listeners face-to-face.
Some of the locations Smart Talk broadcast from in 2017 were the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, the York Garden Show, Lebanon Valley College, Bube’s Brewery, the Extraordinary Give in Lancaster, Allenberry Resort and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
Often the guests who appeared on those programs talked about topics related to the locations but we addressed other timely issues as well.
The broadcasts were full of energy that a live audience brings and included questions from audience members as well.
