About This Show
Some call it fly-over country -- the big, burly middle between the East and the West. We’re coast-less, and OK with that. Life out here isn't what it used to be. We're Midwestern ... ish. This is a podcast about the thinkers, doers and change-makers that make up our part of the country. Hosted by writer, storyteller and public radio journalist Gina Kaufmann, a Midwesterner born and raised.
