Roxanne Weber speaks with Dakota Free Press, June 2017.

The latest Dakota Free Press Podcast is ready for your earbuds! In Episode #15, we talk Pierre political activist Roxanne Weber, organizer of protests, a ballot measure, and a couple of fall forums to promote civil discourse.

But first, co-host Spencer Dobson and I talk about how the richer and poorer perceive their sickness and health (and how the ACA is helping and Trumpublicans are not), the great China–U.S. chicken for beef trade (I think the Chinese are getting the better deal), the Aberdeen library’s effort to help new Americans, and, so we can practice our new favorite word, the big nonmeandered waters bill passed by the Legislature on Monday.

  1. That poor woman, Roxanne Weber, is she the only Democrat watch dog in Pierre? I wouldn’t be surprised ;)

  2. Hey, she said she had more people than herself show up at the Women’s March in Pierre, so she’s evidently not alone!

    Also awfully convenient to be coordinating a ballot question from Pierre—much easier to drop by the Secretary of State’s office to get and submit documents.

    Great podcast. Thanks for introducing us to the mind, temperament and energy of Ms. Weber.
