Main Street Weekend, February 9
On our Sunday morning highlight show we talk with Grand Forks native Andrew Towne, who was part of a six-man crew that rowed the perilous Drake Passage to Antarctica, and set several worlds records! Towne is no stranger to adventure—he’s climbed the tallest mountain on each of the world’s seven continents. The Drake Passage row will be featured in an upcoming Discovery Channel documentary. ~~~ We hear from Dr. David Warne who helped start a new doctorate in indigenous health at the University of North Dakota—the first of its kind in the world. ~~~ And NDSU history professor Tom Isern will share a Plains Folk essay about a new book that offers new insights about the Non-Partisan League in North Dakota.
