The North Carolina Hops & Roots Festival brings together local music, local beer, and food grown on local farms.

After traveling extensively for his job, festival founder Ira Planer decided to create this event to celebrate the distinct regional culture of his home state. Host Frank Stasio is joined by Planer, musician Lizzy Ross and Michael Tiemann, the founder of Manifold Studio, to discuss linking sustainable agriculture and a local cultural community.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
