Two of the Center’s recent stories were featured on Maine radio news programs this past week. Senior Reporter John Christie was interviewed by MPBN’s Mal Leary for an MPBN version of Christie’s story about how Gov. Paul LePage inserted himself in a religious discrimination case against Moody’s Diner. You can listen to that story here.

And Senior Reporter Naomi Schalit was interviewed by WERU’s Amy Browne about our story on Time Warner’s wining and dining of Maine legislators at a luxury hotel in Cape Elizabeth. You can listen to that extensive interview here — Schalit’s part of the program begins at 8:44 minutes into the recording.
