March for Science events are taking place across the listening area and across the country this Saturday, April 22, Earth Day.  We recently spoke with Jessica Hartshorn who organized the event taking place in Grand Rapids. Jessica talks about the importance of scientists and biologists in our region, how supporting science is a non-partisan issue and why supporting scientists and the work that they do matters to her.  

The question posed to our commentators Aaron Brown and Chuck MarohnIs Health Care A Right?

Adopting a 100% local diet would have a huge economic impact--almost $1 billion--in the western Lake Superior region. It would also add thousands of jobs. That's the message of David Abazs, researcher, farmer and keynote speaker at the 9th Annual Iron Range Earth Fest.

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to nature.  These days the activity in the natural world is profound... sometimes subtle and  requiring a concentrated effort to witness, other times taking over our senses.

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.
