Capitol Conversations – season starts January 8th


Season three of Capitol Conversations begins on January 8th – the first day of the Minnesota legislative session.

Hosted by journalist Marty Owings, Capitol Conversations live-streams from the State Capitol each week of the session. The program brings together policy makers, political operatives, members of the press, and others to discuss key issues facing the legislature – as well as little-covered stories.

This season, former legislator Paul Gardener will be joining Marty as a frequent co-host. Radio journalist Ahndi Fridell will also be joining the line-up from time to time. Public Record Media (PRM) provides technical support and partial funding for the program.

Disclosure – PRM’s Matt Ehling is currently serving on the board of the Minnesota Coalition on Government Information, which will be taking public positions regarding proposed changes to the Minnesota Data Practices Act, the state’s open government law. Because of this, Ehling will not be involved with content decisions related to the production of Capitol Conversations, and has not sought press credentials for the 2013 season.
