Sen. Collins’ long, silent walk, Maine’s next referendum and the fight for family care

This week on the Beacon podcast, Taryn, Ben and Mike talk about the wave of protests that greeted Sen. Susan Collins on her return to the state, including an especially moving silent vigil as she walked out of the Maine Public Radio studio on Wednesday.

They also cover the certification of the signatures to place a health care expansion referendum on the November ballot and the launch of a campaign for guaranteed child and elderly care.
