Local Matters: From the Asheville 11 to top-secret Rosman

What’s coming up in the next issue? It’s not quite top secret: News Editor Margaret Williams chats with writer (and former editor) Jon Elliston about what the National Security Agency was up to while ensconced at what’s now the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in Rosman. And in other news… Senior News Reporter David Forbes talks about his “Asheville 11 primer,” Mountain Xpress editorial intern Amanda Varner previews our annual calendar roundup, and Reporter Jake Frankel discusses farm conservation and the Buncombe County Commisioners’ approval of a federal-stimulus loan to Ingles Markets.

Podcast produced by Steve Shanafelt. The theme music is “jam band spy song” by E. Lee
