Voices of New Hampshire

Marie- Elizabeth Ramas & her family

Voices of New Hampshire is a new project designed to connect you with us - and with each other – by bringing more audience voices to our airwaves.

For this project, we're collecting audio recordings of people from across the state, and incorporating them into our daily broadcast through short audio clips played at different times throughout the day on NHPR.

Want to add your voice? Send us an email at and tell us a story from your life during the coronavirus pandemic. Maybe you’ll share an activity or event that has brought you joy over the past year, or something you’re looking forward to doing as life slowly gets back to “normal.”


Marie-Elizabeth Ramas of Hollis, N.H. wonders how we emerge from our collective COVID-experience stronger -- and perhaps, as better neighbors. As a medical professional and mother of three, Marie and her family collaborated with other nearby families to create learning pods for their children.
