Duration: 51:00
Program: Conversations On Civility: An Iowa Perspective

Is the best word to describe our country’s mood, fractious? We assemble a panel to discuss the topic of civility. Our in-studio guests are: J. Barry Griswell, president of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines; Scott Raecker, executive director of Character Counts in Iowa; Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa and Kathy Obradovich, political columnist, Des Moines Register.

Also included is a short interview with two business partners, Joe Shannahan and Chuck Larson, Jr and how they’ve put past political barbs aside and gone into business together.
