Community Conversations on 103.3FM KUMD

KUMD hosts 3-4 guests from Northern Minnesota into our studios for a conversation on issues critical to our community, to move the conversation forward. The program works to connect academic research and personal experience to community action. Topics range from gun control to sustainability, from elder care to accessibility. This program airs monthly on the first Monday of each month.
