Infrastructure can mean a lot of things - roads, sewers, power, broadband. This week we begin our Dig Deep series with liberal Aaron Brown and conservative Chuck Marohn. We begin the conversation by talking about the history of infrastructure in our region. When did the roads get paved? When did sewers come in? How was it paid for?
In our second Dig Deep conversation this week we talk transportation. Conservative commentator Chuck Marohn posed this: Are we trying to connect places or are we trying to build places? He and liberal commentator Aaron Brown dig deep into roads and highways and what the costs are to our communities.
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.
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 Is the model of job creation outdated?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.
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.
