12/30/2013 TruthToTell-Bring on the New Year! Big Ideas and Holiday Wishes for Minnesota in 2014


The New Year’s holiday is a time of promise; marked by those ever hopeful New Year’s resolutions and celebration of better times ahead. In that spirit, TruthToTell will be speaking with Minnesotans across the state, including you, to gather big ideas and special wishes for 2014. Our focus will be both light and serious: from the sheer delight of a good poem, to the mind-turning power of a good idea; to the solidarity that comes with communicating with each other across region and circumstance.

TTT’s Michelle Alimoradi and Tom O’Connell will have Representative Carlos Mariani and Marcia Avner in studio to provide some context for our conversation and add a few New Year’s wishes of their own.
