In this episode of the Best of Living in Iowa, we talk with political veteran Minnette Doderer who spent nearly four decades serving the people of Iowa and epitomized the saying, "a woman's place is in the House and the Senate." We profile Iowa's own music man, Meredith Willson. And, take a wild ride on a Doodle Bug motor scooter.



For 16 seasons, Living in Iowa was an omnibus television series that illustrated what it meant to be "uniquely Iowan." Through compelling human interest stories, it provided snapshots of Iowans representing every walk of life. As part of its 50th anniversary, Iowa Public Television will revisit this popular series through The Best of Living in Iowa, a weekly program that features stories gathered from the archives of the original series. From this rich treasure trove of stories, viewers will relive moments from the past and be reminded of Iowa's unique heritage.
