What is The Iowa Podcast?
We hear you. You want to hear from real Iowans, talking about real stuff within the state worth paying attention to. And you don’t want the political drama and spin that comes with it? The Iowa Podcast is for you.
The Iowa Podcast is Real Talk. Real Iowans. No Drama. The show is an interview-style format, featuring weekly 30-minute discussions with Iowans you want to hear from.
We discuss current events and stuff that impacts Iowans TODAY. We will dive into business, culture, news, and yes even politics, albeit from the purest most objective perspective possible.
It seems like everyone is pushing some kind of agenda today. You won’t find that garbage here! We certainly won’t duck real issues, and we certainly won’t stay away from difficult questions, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. On The Iowa Podcast we believe the following:
- Never, ever edit or take a guest out of context.
- Ask tough questions with respect
- Talk about the topics that impact Iowans
Who is The Iowa Podcast For?
“As a non-native Iowan, can I still listen to this podcast, or are there entry requirements?” Yes you can, and no there aren’t! This podcast is for Iowans, Iowa expats, or Iowans at heart. We welcome everyone.
Except for Cornhuskers…
…ok, Cornhuskers are allowed, but don’t make us regret it.
