Minnesota’s Iron Range Podcast

Hull Rust Mahoning Mine; Hibbing, Minnesota

I was lucky enough to spend much of the summer of 2011 in northern Minnesota, getting to know the region where the Mississippi begins. Of all the places I went, there were few that grabbed my attention more so than the Iron Range. The unforgiving climate and diverse mix of people devoted to grueling work sure makes for some compelling stories.

Now you can learn more about this unique part of the country thanks to a Strong Towns podcast that features Iron Range native Aaron Brown, a writer, educator, radio guy, and Range advocate. It’s a fascinating hour-long peak into a world that most of us rarely get to experience.

After you’ve listened to the podcast, come back to the Mississippi Valley Traveler website and check out my guides to the Mesabi Iron Range and the Cuyuna Iron Range.
