Sarah Smarsh believes there is "an exodus afoot that suggests a national homecoming, across generations, to less bustling spaces."  Does this sound like northern Minnesota to you?

In a recent New York Times Op-Ed Sarah Smarsh goes on to point out that rural folks are not just white people lamenting the loss of their family farm.  Rural places have a diversity of voices  -  a diversity of people in places that get defined by most often by people who live in urban areas.

For our June edition of Dig Deep we were live on the air discussing national media and what it doesn't get about rural/small towns. 

Tune in for this conversation with our liberal commentator Aaron Brown and our conservative Chuck Marohn. 

If you have a topic you'd like them to tackle - send it our way!

Chuck talks about how the fake news DOES apply to those of us who live in rural areas....because media doesn't come from small towns, it comes from large urban areas.  So the news that we see on TV, read in papers and listen to on the radio, isn't news from where we live.  Sometimes it feels fake.
