Minneapolis Show


Tom Bodett

Y'know the guy who tells you that they'll leave the light on for you at Motel 6? That's Tom. But what you may not know is that Tom has also written eight books, appears regularly on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and had a brief cameo in Pinky and the Brain.


Betsy Hodges

Wayzata, Minnesota’s own, Betsy Hodges isn’t only the current mayor of Minneapolis, she’s also an active member of the Minnesota Justice Foundation and Take Action Minnesota. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Mayor Hodges also joined 8 other U.S. leaders in meeting Pope Francis in 2015. THAT, is cool.


The Jayhawks 

If there is an OG of American alternative country-rock bands, it’s The Jayhawks. Emerging from the Twin Cities more than 25 years ago, this highly influential quartet has released 8 studio albums, and their 9th, produced by R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, drops later this year.
