Our April conversation on Dig Deep is about health care. We pair our liberal commentator Aaron Brown and conservative commentator Chuck Marohn to look at where health care came from and what it used to mean. We'llmove thru this topic all week - on Wednesday it's health care right now and we'll talk reform on Friday.

In the 2016 presidential election the candidates who spoke directly about jobs and job creation seemed to get the most votes. But what does that mean? Will they live up to their promises? Is there capital coming in and jobs that need to be done? Or should the government have a hand in job creation?
It's part 2 of our podcast on jobs. This time Aaron and Chuck are looking at what increased productivity that was supposed to mean workers would have more time for learning or families or becoming entrepreneurs. But automation and increased productivity often meant a loss of jobs and a change in community.
In this final installment of the Dig Deep podcast on jobs Chuck and Aaron look ahead. Is the model of job creation outdated? Who should be creating jobs and how much should people be paid? These are all questions that guide this conversation.
In this month's Dig Deep we focus on labor unions. Our commentators are Aaron Brown from the Iron Range - he's an educator, author, blogger and host of the Great Northern Radio Show. Aaron provides our liberal perspective on our topics while Chuck Marohn is a conservative commentator from Brainerd who is the founder and CEO ofStrong Towns.
