In her new book, journalist Rainesford Stauffer makes the case for moving back to your hometown. "I thought of home as a waiting room, the place I had to be until I could go somewhere else. Then I left, and missed it terribly," she writes.

Our guests are people who chose to leave Western New York, only to find themselves pulled back by a number of forces. We talk about what our region needs to be even more attractive to people who think they will leave and never return.
