    S3 E2 - Mayor Tyler Tries to Steal Jacob's Job

    That's right... Mayor Tyler TRIES to steal Jacob's role on the Podcast as he fills in for him on this fun-filled episode. While the crew does give Jacob a call to see how his BlazeAir video shoots are going in Las Vegas and Phoenix, but the main part of this ep is all about local events and happenings in the Lakes Area. Also, Mayor Tyler gives an update on whats going on around Pequot Lakes, and also what he's been most impressed with this winter season. Plus, Colton and Isaiah remind the people how they can WIN 2 tickets to the Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza thanks to BlazeAirMN and WoodsToWaterMN, and of course ListenLocalMN!
    Thanks again to Tyler for not only filling in as co-host on this episode, but also being the Listen Local Podcasts MAIN SPONOR with his company Pequot Lakes and Gull Lake Sanitation.

    Listen Local - S2 Ep 27 - Emilee Mae Struss

    Listen Local - S2 Ep 27 - Emilee Mae Struss

    The episode that brought out all of the emotions. From the laughing to the crying, this by far was the most emotional Listen Local episode yet. We caught up with our friend Emilee Mae Struss to discuss some very important topics. You may know Emilee as the Editor of the Lake Country Journal, and while we do touch on that - and the story she wrote about the podcast - the main reason we wanted her back on the show was to dive into dealing with loss and mental health overall during the holiday season. To say Emilee had an eventful summer would be the understatement of the century. After losing her brother TJ to suicide, and taking over his side of the company Outfit My Life, she knew her life's mission - at least for the forseable future - was to help raise awareness for mens mental health. To go along with all of this, Emilee talks about how the book she was about to publish, which is a story based around her life, took an unbelievable turn, and will now touch on so much more. We can't thank Emilee enough for coming on the show and telling her story, and we cannot wait for this book to be released in 2022!
    Also, while it is hard to follow up possible the most meaningful segment in Listen Local history, we did have our main sponsor Tyler Gardner of Pequot & Gull Lake Sanitation on the show as well. Instead of the usual Trash Talk with him, we had him put his Pequot Lakes Mayor hat on for this one to talk about the incident that happened a the Pequot Lakes High School last week that involved a student and the Principle. Tyler tell us all about the discussions that went down between the city and the schoolboard during that day they cancelled shool.
    Once again, thank you so much to Emilee and Tyler for being on the show!

    Listen Local - S2 Ep 26 - Cuyuna Cove

    On the latest episode of the Listen Local podcast, the guys catch up with Chris and Kelsey of Cuyuna Cove in Crosby. They discuss everything from how the idea of "The Cove" came to fruition, what it was like living out of an RV for a while, making the choice to move to Crosby, what the past couple of years have been like, annnnnnd what it's like having travel influencers from around the world want to come stay there.
    Plus, since this is a Cuyuna-based episode... Isaiah aka the 'Wandering Woodsman', goes out and about and ends up at Cuyuna Brewing Co. While there he chats with Owner Laura Huisinga about their big year, some upcoming events at the Brewery, and the decision to bring in Burritos California as their main food option.
    All of that and more on the 26th episde of the season. And most importantly, special thanks to our Sponsor: Pequot Lakes and Gull Lake Sanitation!

    Listen Local - S2 Ep 25 - Colton Sturm

    Listen Local - S2 Ep 25 - Colton Sturm

    Beach Boys, X Games, BRP and the Pleasure Palace... all topics discussed on this episode between the LL Guys and special guest Colton Sturm. And yes, you read that right, "THE PLEASURE PALACE".
    On a serious note for a second tho, HUGE thanks to Sturm for coming on the show to tell us some of his best X Games Athlete stories, being a ambassador for BRP's Lynx Snowmobiles, starting a business in the Brainerd Lakes Area, and why the Nisswa boy always knew this area was 'home.'
    Also - and probably the biggest tease for this show - Sturm, who is almost always rocking a hella mustache, lets the crew (and listeners) know his thoughts on Isaiah's transition into the Mustache fraternity.
    ANNNNND, if you are looking for something to do this weekend and are feeling the Christmas Spirit, make sure to head down to Mn Traders Co. from 4-7pm on Saturday for their BCE Fundraising Event.
