Infrastructure can mean a lot of things - roads, sewers, power, broadband.  This week we begin our Dig Deep series with liberal Aaron Brown and conservative Chuck Marohn.  We begin the conversation by talking about the history of infrastructure in our region.  When did the roads get paved?  When did sewers come in?  How was it paid for?

It's part 2 of our podcast on jobs.  This time Aaron and Chuck are looking at what increased productivity that was supposed to mean workers would have more time for learning or families or becoming entrepreneurs.  But automation and increased productivity often meant a loss of jobs and a change in community.
