“Horodno Burning”, Boomerang Champion/ Inventor, Sen. Patrick Leahy

In Vermont Viewpoint by WDEV Radio

We open the show hearing about the novel “Horodno Burning” from author Michael Freed-Thall. It’s set in late-19th century czarist Russia, when Jews were persecuted and women had few opportunities. Then we spend time with a Vermonter who has been the 8-time world boomerang champion and has 30 patents, Eric Darnell of Strafford. And we finish speaking with Senator Patrick Leahy, who has decided to end his political career after eight terms in Washington.
