Episode details

Welcome to our new subscribers! In addition to Julie’s commentary columns, she hosts a Monday Zoom Lunch call with notable guests. Subscribers are invited to join the conversation. The audio version of the discussion is then sent out in podcast form.

Last week’s guest was Dave Price, who recently left his position as Politics Editor for WHO-TV. He didn’t do so for a job in a larger market, as is the typical reason people go. Find out why in this hour-long interview.

One of Price's projects is writing a column for the Iowa Writers’ Collaborative, which includes 35 professional writers from around Iowa (and a former one who writes about the Iowa congressional delegation from Washington, D.C.).

Today’s guest is the Marvelous Marilyn Maye, a cabaret singer enjoying a career resurgence and New York’s new ‘it’ girl at 95. She is a Des Moines’ East High School graduate, has appeared in Okoboji for decades, and will be with us for an hour-long interview, including with fans worldwide.

Join us at noon central time today. Click to join the call:
