Maria and Robert Diaz were 8-year-old twins. They loved detective stories. Maria and Robert wanted to be detectives when they grew up. They daydreamed about solving big cases and becoming famous. But when they went searching for a mystery, they couldn't find one at first. But a visit to the local library led them right to a real puzzler.

Story by Skidompha friend Bob Emmons, and read by Mal Gormley, with apologies.

Featured on this program is Lester Young, one of the greatest tenor sax players of the classic era in jazz.
His cool, light tones and laid back style was much different than the full-tone sounds that Coleman Hawkins built in the 1930s.

Bob Emmons' interview of local resident Don Edwards reveals someone with a truly unique and fascinating background.

Edwards is a retired Army major general, as well as a former Vermont state legislator. Later, he became an aide and military advisor to his long-time friend Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Edwards ascribes the secret to Senator's popularity as "The Guy Next Door" personality.

Edwards later became a military commentator for Fox News after the 9/11 attacks.

Edwards also describes some of his remarkable experiences, including the time he and Bernie spotted (and eventually outed) a Medal of Honor imposter in a parade in Burlington.

Edwards also relates his involvement in legislation to help veterans who were exposed to deadly toxins in combat.

If you would like to be considered as a guest on Skidompha Sketches let us know!

We first interviewed our friend Betsy Noyce in 1972 when she recounted her childhood memories of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

This time she vividly describes her exotic--and often funny--life as a military diplomat's child growing up in China just before the Communists took over in 1949.

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
