Yes, it's puppets on the radio!  Ojibwe puppets created and from the mind of Michael Lyons.  In our first episode we learn the Ojibwe word for coffee and we get to hear the super puppet couple of Nana Boozhoo and Natasha. 

Check out more of Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo on YouTube!

 Leah Lemm heads to Hackensack to talk to a family that is cooking up traditional Thai food.  This story is made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the Citizens of MN. 

This is the first of our podcast series from KAXE/KBXE's Strong Women.  Not broadcast on the radio they are a little more off-the-cuff.  Let us know what you think! 

We've been holding Strong Women focus groups at KAXE/KBXE in the last year, talking with women in rural northern MN about their lives and experienced.

This time when we gathered we talked about women supporting other women.  Laura Connelly led this focus group and in this conversation she talks about themes that surfaced and what they mean.

Our Strong Women conversations will continue on the radio, and soon, podcast only conversations as well!  Stay tuned!
