In The Moment ... April 13, 2017 Show 071 Hour 1

After a brief introduction to put “The Shift” into context we kick it over to SDPB’s Kealey Bultena for a live-from-Centerville conversation with Superintendent Tim Hagedorn.

SDPB’s Gary Ellenbolt takes you to Hurley and Parker in Turner County for a look at how the changing farm economy and the urban pull of Sioux Falls has impacted small towns and the people who live there.

A conversation with Ben Winchester of the University of Minnesota. We discuss his research regarding “rewriting the rural narrative,” the shifting farm economy, the impact of globalization on rural Midwestern towns, and the positive aspects of a diversified economy.
