I'm inviting you to participate in an interview with an ice fisherman while he competes on hard water in the World Ice Fishing Championship in Wausau, WI. What questions do you have for the Team USA captain?

If you can't make the Hangout, ask a question in the comment section.

I will post an archive of the interview on http://mntoday.mprnews.org/ 

I hope winter is treating you well.

Is it possible to have another Fred Rogers today?
 
The Most Important 7 Minutes of Television Ever Recorded

This speech by Mr. Rogers was presented to the United States Senate in 1969, when it was proposed that the funding for PBS would be cut. (Just as Mitt Romney suggested last night.) Fred Rogers appeared before the senate and gave one of the best speeches of all time, one that speaks to the heart of every person and explains why education is vital. If you take a few minutes out of your day to watch anything, watch this.

A NEW NATIONAL ANTHEM: SONGS TO VOTE BY

For decades politicians have been selling their vision for the country with popular songs. Now it's your turn. This week on The Current Presents, we have a crowd-sourced playlist on the state of the union from voters across Minnesota. 
Back in the fall we had this idea: We believe that everyone who works at the Current (and most people who don't) have in them at least one great idea for a radio show - something they are passionate...
