MPR = @MinnesotaRising Perspective on Radio

As 2012 draws to a close, it's fun to reflect on all that Minnesota Rising and its network have been fortunate to be a part of this year. In September alone, there were two instances of working with Minnesota Public Radio; including my getting to serve as a guest on Policy and a Pint as well as offering some input on The Daily Circuit's Friday Roundtable. See below for the conversation descriptions and links to the podcasts focusing on some of the key issues rising to the fore in 2012.


Policy and a Pint: The Looming Intergenerational War
St. Paul, Minn. — If we're to believe the wave of recent articles in magazines and newspapers, there's a new inter-generational conflict brewing. The Baby Boomers are sticking it to the Gen X-ers and Millennials: they ran up the debt and blew up the economy, yet they'll still get all the entitlements they expect as seniors - while the younger masses inherit the mess and a much bleaker personal future for themselves.
But is it really that simple? We investigated these questions at another edition of Policy and a Pint, presented by 89.3 The Current and The Citizens League on Monday, September 10th.
Steve Seel was joined by two special guests, economist Chris Farrell from MPR News and Diane Tran from the young professionals group Minnesota Rising, for "Policy and a Pint: The Looming Inter-generational War" at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis.

Friday Roundtable: Deception on the campaign trail

This week on the Friday Roundtable, our panel will discuss deception on the campaign trail. When so much of what we hear in political ads (and from the candidates themselves) is factually questionable, what's a voter to do?
