Host Jumondeh Tweh shovels snow and plays a documentary produced by Britt Aamodt about the Halloween Blizzard of 1991, which remains one of the largest and most memorable storms in Minnesota history.

Post-Smithsonian Delinquent by Melissa Olson
In a Brooklyn studio, KFAI’s Melissa Olson interviews musician and visual artist Brad Kahlhamer about his complex identity and unique personal history. He was born in 1956 to Native American parents and then adopted by a German-American family. They raised him in Tucson, Arizona and later moved to small-town Wisconsin. Now, Kahlhamer describes to Melissa how he’s trying to create a ‘third place’ through his art and his strong feelings about the relationships between making music, drawing, and sculpting.
