From street theatre to fine art, ramen to injera, maple forests to grass that grows right up to the road, the north indeed extends much deeper than commonly known.

Excited to hear where this show goes. So many Minnesota misconceptions ripe for unveiling.
Place based podcast. interesting.

This is great!
