Wesli Dymoke

Wesli, or someone like her, is a freelance writer, editor, and researcher; founder and executive director of Providence Community Radio; and senior editor of The Agenda; the crackling narrative talent behind such stirring sagas as "A Fare Choice: How Rhode Island Can Invest in Public Transit and Energy Independence." She is also an amateur novelist with several incomplete crappy works, and is Rhode Island coordinator for National Novel Writing Month.

She dresses like every day is laundry day, and can often be found taking up valuable space and bogarting AS220's only power outlet.

YouTube is the next NetFlix

As students start dragging their beach-burned, hungover asses back to college in our little seven-school town, here’s an oldie (like, at least a year old!) but goodie, to remind ourselves, while our parking spaces and peace of mind disappear, why we love them — and their money — so much.
