Exquisitely informative, unassumingly entertaining

In true Iowa fashion, Charity Nebbe welcomes her on-air guests with a tone of genuine intrigue that invites listeners and and guests alike into a space of sharing both educational and personal. Its nonchalant presentation makes this program the perfect companion to bouts of house chores or cooking, long drives, and moments of downtime. As a post-college student who's lived outside Iowa for years, I must thank Ms. Nebbe and the rest of the team for consistently renewing my Iowa pride and offering me a way to welcome my non-Iowan friends into a deeper understanding of my love for this land of pigs and corn (and so much more). Well done!
