Are you a Midwesterner?

Middle West Review

This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.

Middle West Review and Emerson College Polling have released the largest-ever study on Midwestern identity. It asked participants two questions: Do you live in the Midwest and are you a Midwesterner?

Jon Lauck is editor of Middle West Review and author of the book "The Good Country: A History of the American Midwest."

He joins In the Moment for a look at what the study reveals about Midwesterners and the Midwest's borders.
