North Fork in the News Podcast: Kind strangers and hostile ones

In this week’s edition of our North Fork in the News podcast, we look at two extremes.

In our first story, “The Blue Purse,” we’ll share the heartwarming story of two strangers who found a young girl’s purse in a Riverhead store and returned it safely to her family on the other side of the globe.

Later, we’ll touch on a raucous congressional debate hosted in Riverhead last week that saw audience members shout accusations and interrupt the proceedings, while some politicians expressed support for the rude members in the crowd.

The podcast also includes an update on the story of Tom Cutinella, the 16-year-old football player from Shoreham-Wading River who died after suffering a head injury earlier this month.
