He recently visited with Lori Walsh of South Dakota Public Broadcasting’s “In the Moment.” ~~~ In this week’s Natural North Dakota essay, Chuck Lura discusses pheasants. ~~~ From The Memory Palace podcast, Nate DeMaio mourns the loss of a radio station. ~~~ We get a look at the lives of the myriad female code breakers of WWII with an excerpt from The Takeaway.
