NextWave Radio Hour is a new program featuring folks in their 20s and 30s, often referred to as Millennials, from all across Maine. In this program, host Pepin Mittelhauser will be discussing issues, news, and current events both locally and nationally, and featuring young creators who trailblaze their own paths in our modern political, economic, and social climate. We hope to provide unique perspectives of life from the next generation working to create the future they hope to lead. This project was made possible by the generous support of the Maine Community Foundation. The debut episode features several folks telling their stories of finding their places in Maine.

This month:
-What it’s like finding your way to Maine, or staying in Maine
-Normalizing college degree expectations for young people
-Creating a life and making a living in Maine
