A series of short, sound-rich pieces in which experts teach listeners a practical or whimsical skills.

Each Wednesday this summer, Vermont Edition tapped a local expert to teach us a skill, or introduce us to a new hobby in our series "Summer School". Reporters ventured outdoors to learn everything from how to run a 5K to how to catch a dragonfly. While we called it Summer School, these stories endure across seasons.
