Straight from the Twin Cities PBS archive, Minnesota Portraits features intimate conversations with notable people who call this place home. Recorded as a television show in the early 1990s, these conversations revolve around midwestern leaders of industry and community at a time when they were still working towards their goals. But what's old is new again, so we've dusted them off and created a podcast series that offers cogent insight about this modern moment. Minnesota Portraits is made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the citizens of Minnesota.
