Between Two Paddles is a new podcast brought to you by The Lake and Co., where we believe we’re only as good as the company we keep. We are an independent, bootstrapped, community-driven, women-owned company built on hard work, enthusiasm and a whole lot of grit. Listen in to hear the stories of people doing exceptional things in the North! I’m Kim Shelton and one of my great loves is storytelling - there are so many stories to be told by so many amazing people from the north, from entrepreneurs to homesteaders to comedians from the rez. A lot of folk up here think what they’re doing is pretty normal, they’re humble and unwilling to toot their own horn, so we're doing it for them. For the People, From the People.

Part 1: Anton Treuer Talks Line 3 Oil Pipeline
Line 3 Pipeline Replacement - how much do you know? The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will decide in June whether or not to allow Enbridge the necessary permits to begin construction. It's a hot topic in the northland and we were curious about some things; who will it affect? How much oil do we really use? What are the alternative energy sources? How many jobs might it provide?
So we turned to professor, author and cultural teacher Anton Treuer to help shed light on some of these questions.
