This week’s BOX TALK RADIO is very different from any I have done before.  The entire show was recorded live from the Maine Chamber of Commerce Washington DC Fly-In.  The show is a mix of interviews with me re-capping our meetings with Senator Collins, Senator King, Rep. Pingree and Rep. Michaud as well as our briefing at the White House.

Because there was so much happening during the trip, the show had to be extended to next week as well.  So tune in next Saturday for part 2 of Derek’s Washington DC trip show.
