This week on Making Sausage we welcomed Briana Bierschbach from MinnPost and our longtime DFL commentator Colleen Nardone for a conversation about the appointment of Lt. Governor Tina Smith to Senator Al Franken's seat.
Meadow Kouffeld was back with us this week talking about why the grouse hunt was so low. Some think West Nile Virus may have a role in it. Meadow is a regional biologist with the Ruffed Grouse Society and the American Woodcock Society.
Colleen Nardone joined us on the Thursday morning show. She talked about the historic elections in Minnesota this week, and how national media was likening the Democratic win across the country to getting Democrats more engaged. Colleen had a different opinion.
On the Thursday morning show we welcomed Holly Christensen and John Downing from Advocates for Family Peace to have a conversation about domestic violence. Advocates for Family Peace serves women and children and also works with men in the intervention program for men and fathers. One of the men in the group, Chris, came in to tell his story.
