Once a month we gather together Minnesota Brown's Aaron Brown and Strong Town's Chuck Marohn.  They have lots in common including their choice to work and raise their families in their hometowns on the Iron Range and in Brainerd....but they come from different philosophical backgrounds - Aaron is liberal, Chuck is conservative.

  Mark Bridge lives in Park Rapids.  He's a musician, a historian, a history re-enactor, a chef and a revivalist of recipes from days long gone by.   We spoke on the morning show about his experience as a historical re-enactor and about an exciting project he's embarked on with the National Park Service.  He's been commissioned to re-create recipes written by Mrs. Augusta Kohrs, wife of a Montana cattle king and hostess on a ranch that spanned more than one million acres.
