The nation’s longest-running, locally-produced magazine show is now a podcast. Discover where to go and what's interesting in New England!

Episode Date
Discover Litchfield, Connecticut

Chronicle is off to the northwestern corner of Connecticut, a place of rolling hills and charming towns. There, Ted Reinstein finds contented cows at a dairy farm that’s run more like a guesthouse than a barn; visits a nature conservancy that gives a home to threatened or endangered species of swans, ducks and pheasants; and explores a destination getaway that features a collection of outlandish cottages you have to see to believe.

Mothers are dying giving birth

It should have been the best of days for Kenny and Seveny Fuchu. After years of trying, Seveny got pregnant, and now she was in labor. Seveny gave birth to a healthy child that day. But she didn’t survive the birth – and father and son went home alone. The same tragedy strikes hundreds of American families every year. The rate of maternal mortality continues to rise in the US as outcomes improve in other advanced countries. Shayna Seymour sits down with the producer of the show, Nneka Faison, to discuss the alarming trend nationally and in Massachusetts.
