0000017a-15d9-d736-a57f-17ff8ca00001NHPR began broadcasting in 1981, and in the intervening years has documented the the stories of New Hampshire. From policy makers in Concord, to residents around the state affected by those policies; from notable Granite Staters, to our ordinary neighbors with a good story, NHPR has produced compelling radio for New Hampshire, by New Hampshire. These stories are the components of the NHPR archives, and on this blog we'll dust off some old stories that are newly relevant, and even find some that were never broadcast. We hope to demonstrate how we've changed as a state by charting our narrative on a longer scale.

From the Archives: NPR's Margot Adler


Earlier this week, longtime NPR reporter Margot Adler died. Morning Edition produced a great story about her career.

Last year she was a featured speaker at the Monadnock Summer Lyceum in Peterborough. As part of our partnership with the Lyceum, we broadcast her address, which was on a bit of a pet topic for her...vampires. Specifically, how cultures telegraph their own strengths and weaknesses onto the mythical creatures and reinvent them into the beasts that are required for a given generation. Her fascination with the monsters began when her husband was diagnosed with cancer.

Adler then took some questions from the audience.

Originally broadcast 7/21/13.

She was also one of the last guests on Talk of the Nation in 2013, discussing with Neal Conan her research into the subject.
