Dakota Political Junkies Seth Tupper (Rapid City Journal reporter) and Jon Hunter (Madison Daily Leader publisher) join us for our weekly round-table conversation about South Dakota politics. Today we talk about self-described “Wingnuts,” non-partisan elections, citizen democracy, and national calls to tear down a presidential statue in Rapid City.

Author Paul Higbee is with us for a look at South Dakota’s “Cowboy Governor” Tom Berry. We talk dustbowls, debt, and Democrats.
