A lot goes into starting a new business — that isn't a surprise to anyone.

Join them, along with special guest host Rebecca Undem, as they navigate through their first official month in downtown Aberdeen and welcome you home to their own rural revolution.

Mama said there'd be days like this
The moms are in the studio this week! That's right — with The Market on the Plaza just a week away from opening, Brodie's and Carly's moms are in the Hub City to help with the finishing touches! Take a stroll down memory lane with Sue and Nancy — if you've ever wondered why the hosts are the way they are, you're about to find out.
The Rural Revolution is all about having conversations with people doing things to grow their small towns, but it is also inspirational in a way that people can get something out of whether they live in a small town or not. The underlying theme is when you think that thought that somebody should do something about (fill in the blank)... maybe that person should be you! This can be applied to so many aspects of life. Great topics. I love the episode with their moms, it was endearing.
