    Monday, November 29, 2021 - What are microplastics and how are they impacting wild animals? We visit with Dr. Jennifer Sweatman who recently presented at The Wildlife Society's annual conference. She's an assistant professor of biology at Concordia College. ~~~ Friday was Native American Heritage Day, and November is Native American Heritage Month. To acknowledge the month, North Dakota Tourism prepared an essay about opportunities to learn about the region’s rich indigenous heritage. We asked Christy Goulet to adapt the essay and read it for us. Christy is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and a descendant of Chief Little Shell. ~~~ There’s nothing quite like chocolate. The mouth feel, the combination of bitterness and sweetness. When you think chocolate, you probably think Belgium, France, and Switzerland. How about Fergus Falls, Minnesota? We visit with Josh Mohagen of Terroir Chocolate. ~~~ Pasta is great comfort food, but too many carbs can be hard on our bodies. Four Families Pasta has a high-fiber option. We caught up with the company’s treasurer, James Bowling during a Pride of Dakota event.

Now add to that being suspended 20 feet in the air. At the recent Chriskindlmarkt, we caught up with Yvette Reyes, owner and studio director of FM Aerial and Movement Arts.
