I gotta tell ‘ya, this upcoming Iowa Journal is a show I really think you should watch.
I think you should watch every show we produce, but this one has something different.
We are looking into the future.
Specifically, what is Iowa’s future?
I will write more as the week goes on, but this show puts the former president of NBC News next to a percussionist of the band Slipknot. The picture alone is worth the tune-in Thursday night at 8p, Friday at 630p on Iowa Public Television.
Daniel Shipton of BitMethod and Impromptu Studio was next to Kesho Scott of Grinnell College. That side of the table was much better looking.
Here’s the official release that is going out now on the inter-webs.
