Becca and Dustyn introduce us to the organizations, businesses and community events happening in and around Menomonie.  Listen in as they talk with a variety of people, each of which has a story to share.

New episodes drop the 1st and 3rd Friday every month


Comedian and Local Native Tim Harmston Click Here to Listen

Accomplished comedian and Menomonie native Tim Harmston joins the show for this episode. He has performed for the Late Show with David Letterman, on Comedy Central and was a contestant on Last Comic Standing.  Based out of Minneapolis, Tim is a frequent visitor back to his hometown.


They discuss summer fun, thrift sales, Kwik Trip and more. 


Oh and he teams with his wife, comedian Mary Mack, on occasion.  What is that like?


What happens “when it doesn’t go well”


Tom Sampson - The Machine Shed Click Here to Listen 

Local gym owner, Tom Sampson sits with us to discuss his CrossFit facility that is approaching its 10-year anniversary. What differentiates his facility from others?

He takes us through his path from leaving his time as an inmate behind to entering personal training to eventually running his own place.

He is also actively involved in working with youth in town and using his own experiences growing up. His passion for mentoring Menomonie kids is equal to that of his actual business. 


He has expanded this beyond  Menomonie too.


Oh, and be ready for a surprising pick for his favorite movie of all-time.

Rick Remington is the interim director of Landmark Conservancy who is here to tell us about the organization and what it is they do. They are a non-profit organization that has been headquartered in Menomonie for more than three decades under a few different names. 

The focus is on preserving the natural habitat.


What makes this area unique and worth preserving?  Of course, the Devil’s Punchbowl is high on that list.


Some of the projects they’ve worked on over the years.

We open with a discussion on birthday months and then transition to a conversation with The Director Health Officer with the Dunn County Health Department, KT Gallagher.

What are some of the future needs the department is focused on?

Frant Smoot  Chippewa County Historical Society  Click Here to Listen

Becca’s 30th birthday party and Dustyn convincing Becca to attend a “metal head” show open this show before the focus shifts to the recently opened Chippewa Area History Center.  After years of planning and fundraising the new building came online in February. 

Frank Smoot joins the conversation to tell us about the building which will celebrate its Grand Opening in June. We also learn about the Chippewa County Historical Society and its history.

Some of the most interesting pieces the museum has. How many times are pieces rotated.

The importance of exhibiting and educating the area on the Native American roots (and the continued influence on the region). Fighting “cultural extermination”.
