Welcome to TheBooth Powered by ReVision Energy

TheBooth travels around the state asking Mainers about issues facing Maine and topics of interest and communicates these real and raw comments back to the MPBN community over MPBN Radio and MPBN’s Facebook page.

TheBooth is a recycled phone booth that is completely solar powered compliments of our partners at Revision Energy.

At events across Maine, attendees are asked a single question and encouraged to go into TheBooth and record their particular viewpoint/opinion. MPBN’s Radio team mashes up many of the responses and put together a spot that is potentially broadcast and shared online.

So far TheBooth has visited a wide variety of events across Maine including:

  • Maine Science Festival in Bangor, March, 2015
  • MPBN Junior Broadcaster Board in Lewiston, March, 2015
