*Dig Deep – Where Is the White Knight in our Small Towns of Minnesota? Pt. 1

Heidi:  You're listening to Dig Deep on Northern Community Radio it's where we pair conservative commentator Chuck Marohn with our liberal commentator Aaron Brown. Thanks for being back you guys. I'm Heidi Holtan.

We want to extend our thanks to the NW MN Women's fund for their support of recent listening sessions with women in northern MN.  For National Women's History Month they were looking for projects that were centered on:

“NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”

Penumbra Theatre

Abby Swafford and Devery Fairbanks both live in Bemidji and both answered the call to submit their unique perspectives on American life to the Penumbra Theatre's My America writing contest.  They stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about the experience of becoming a finalist in the statewide competition.  Click on the link to hear the conversation! 

This Saturday at 5pm Northern Community Radio will broadcast another edition of the Great Northern Radio Show LIVE from the Thompson Recital Hall on the Bemidji State University campus.  Aaron Brown hosts the variety show, creates most of the skits in the production, and organizes the musical acts.  We spoke with Aaron about what goes into planning it and how it all unfolds.

Janel Hart didn't set out to become a chocolatier--she had studied fashion merchandising in college. Her life direction changed in 1998 when the business she was managing closed and she heard the local chocolate shop was for sale.
