6/13 Live from Studio A: The Sea The Sea

When this indie folk duo from upstate New York passed through Duluth several months ago, they left anyone who was lucky enough to catch them live wanting more. In 2016 they released their sophomore EP, In the Altogether , showcasing their beautifully-crafted songs and rich male/female vocal harmonies. They returned to Duluth on June 13, 2017 for a show at the Red Herring Lounge and joined us in the studio that afternoon.

Greg Michaels

Metal sculptor Greg Michaels on his former career as an illustrator, the welder he bought "to work on the car," and the green jewel that is Duluth.

On this episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa we listen to Obizaan [Lee  Staples], a spiritual advisor for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.  He talks about the value that Anishinaabe culture places on respecting the wholeness of the human body when considering things such as blood donations and transfusions, organ donation, body piercing, vasectomies, tattoos, amputations and surgical alterations.  He also stresses the importance of respecting each other's differences, to not tease or bully those with different identities or lifestyles.

Lori Kempton/Twin Ports Stage

Fresh on the heels of a successful comingling of Duluth and Superior mayors in Love Letters, Twin Ports Stage is feeling pretty good.

The mayors had so much fun they'd like to do another show together, the public was impressed by their "hands-on helping" and the gutting of their proposed new space is done.

  "It was as if the water remembered."

Jacqueline Briggs Martin's latest is the true story of a creek - and a man - finding their way home.

CHUM

"They don't usually like the court at first," admits Deb Holman, ruefully.

But an innovative collaboration between legal professionals and community support service providers (Holman is a Street Outreach Worker for CHUM) is helping to break the cycle of homelessness, chemical dependency, mental illness and crime.
