Can Liberals and Conservatives Talk to Each Other? Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn on Why We Dig Deep

We began Dig Deep in January of 2017 with a conversation about what it means to be rural

Dig Deep is a podcast and radio feature that aims to model some good behavior in our world - a place where a liberal can talk to a conservative and a conservative can talk to a liberal and be not only civil, but actually listen.  But here we find ourselves in the election of 2020 with so much animosity between people in the world as we all struggle through a pandemic, racial unrest and candidates and campaigns that are anything but civil. 

Dig Deep features liberal Aaron Brown - an author, blogger, newspaper columnist, podcaster and instructor at Hibbing Community College from Balsam Township.  And Chuck Marohn - CEO and founder of Strong Towns - also an author, podcaster and blogger from Brainerd.

Dig Deep is made possible in part by the MN Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the Citizens of Minnesota. You can help us keep this funding by taking the yearly survey here!
