Faces Of MN

A YouTube series of interviews hosted by Joel Carlson.   These video interviews feature locally known Minnesotans from a variety of backgrounds.  Perhaps you’ve seen them before or read some of their work, but hopefully these interviews will let you learn something new and provide you with a more in-depth look  and shows you how they got to be where they are today.  I hope you enjoy them and, please, share your thoughts about the different guests that are featured!
