Nick Flom of VANTIS ~ TellTale Folklife Story ~ Sue Balcom on Congee
Thursday, March 11, 2021 - Unmanned aircraft flying across western North Dakota should soon become a common occurrence as the state rolls out the VANTIS network. Joining us to discuss this “first in the nation” testing area is Nick Flom, executive director of VANTIS. ~~~ ~~~ In another TellTale: Dakota Folklife and Stories, we hear about the tumultuous reasons why Germans from Russia left for America from folk singers Gaylinn Becker, Joe Johs, and John, Joe and Andy Gross. ~~~ Speaking of Germans from Russia, we head to the sauerkraut triangle to visit with Sue Balcom, who discusses congee, a digestion-harmonizing porridge, in this week’s Main Street Eats.
