    Listen to this: New podcast by the Duluth News Tribune

    Hey Pressroom Podcast listeners. No, we aren't back with new episodes. Sorry. But we do want to let you know about a new podcast produced by the Duluth News Tribune that you might be interested in.
    One hundred years ago, on June 15, 1920, three black circus workers, Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson and Isaac McGhie, were wrongfully accused of sexual assault and murdered by a mob. In this six-part series, the News Tribune will look back at one of Duluth, Minnesota’s dark moments in history, a time when an estimated 10,000 people participated in or were witness to a hate crime — then didn’t talk about it again publicly for more than 60 years. 

    The Duluth Lynchings is produced by the Duluth News Tribune's Christa Lawler and Samantha Erkkila, with reporting by newsroom staff. The first episode airs Thursday, May 14, but you can listen to the trailer here first.

    Episode 188: Farming in the Northland with Heather-Marie Bloom

    Episode 188: Farming in the Northland with Heather-Marie Bloom

    She’s been coined the “landless farmer.”
    Heather-Marie Bloom never set out to be a farmer, but after taking a farming course and leasing some land in Esko in 2011 she was hooked. She now operates Rising Phoenix Community Farm, a CSA (community supported agriculture) south of Floodwood where she leases 2-acres of land.
    During the growing season, Bloom lives in a tiny house, which she built with the help of her father, on the farmland so she can tend to her crops more easily.

    Episode 187: Analyzing politics with UMD's Cynthia Rugeley

    This week we are joined by a Texas native who has quickly become a go-to political authority for Northland media when it comes to analyzing national politics.  
    University of Minnesota Duluth political science professor, and former journalist, Cynthia Rugeley (rhymes with hugely) discusses Sen. Amy Klobuchar on the debate stage, the Democratic Debates as a whole, and her idea that President Trump’s worst sin is accusing critics of a crime.
    She also talks about local politics and shares why Minnesota, a purple state in her opinion, is an interesting state to follow on a local level.

    Episode 186: Breaking down patterns of violence with writer Chris Godsey

    This week we have with us a writer who caught a wide audience with his recent Saturday Essay “Why Some Men Kill Women” on Perfect Duluth Day. 
    After a Duluth man was charged with fatally stabbing his wife not too far away from his home, Chris Godesy felt compelled to share his experiences and thoughts on men’s violence against women. 
    Godsey, who now works with the nonprofit Men as Peacemakers, shares what we can do to break down patterns of male dominance and how we can become more self-aware of our own behavior.

Highly listenable

Do you live in Duluth? Then you need to listen to this podcast. Do you live somewhere other than Duluth? I feel sad for you, but at least you can live here vicariously by listening to this podcast.
