The case for moving back to your hometown

Christine Corrado and Danielle Raymo on "Connections."
Emmarae Stein
Christine Corrado and Danielle Raymo appear on "Connections with Evan Dawson" on Thursday, July 21, 2022.

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.
