Resisting the pull of polarization

On today's show...

The beaver plays a vital role in the Black Hills ecosystem. But with the species on the decline, humans will step up on Friday to shape Silver Creek.

Anne Dunckel, a biologist with the Forest Service, explains the ecological benefits of human-made beaver dam analogs.

Jennifer Rollins is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and in the top 20 contestants of the Ms. Veteran America competition. She discusses her advocacy for homeless women veterans.

We explore how to have civil conversations with people on the opposite end of the political spectrum. Joel Allen, Ph.D., is a professor of religion and philosophy at Dakota Wesleyan University and director of the McGovern Center.

He previews a fall series coming to DWU, including five events with the depolarization organization Braver Angels.

Kevin Woster walks us through the 55-year career of seasonal park ranger Don Frankfort. You'll hear from Frankfort himself on Friday's In the Moment.

Plus, we rock out with Chris Yost from The Conservatory. His band will perform at the Fallout Art & Music Festival in Aberdeen this weekend. But first, he brings us a preview.
