As a nonprofit, nonpartisan news outlet, The New Bedford Light is pleased to share the work of similar organizations around the region and across the country. This new podcast series by New Hampshire Public Radio is particularly relevant to New Bedford, where the offshore wind industry is expected to be a major force in the local economy.

In this five-part series, the NHPR show Outside/In explores the birth of offshore wind as a new industry that has the power to reshape the future of where our energy comes from.

The Light will publish additional episodes over the next several weeks.

Episode 2: Please Let Me Finish, Mr. Kennedy

Ten years ago, a Kennedy and a Koch shared the same goal: Stop Cape Wind, America’s would-be first offshore wind farm. 
Despite nearly two decades of effort, Cape Wind was never built, and its failure had huge consequences for the offshore wind industry. But it also laid the groundwork for the next wave of offshore wind and the explosive growth to come.
Featuring Cheryl Andrews-Maltais, Jim Gordon, Sean Corcoran, Beth Daley and Audra Parker.
