Home Ground’s guests tell us who
they are, what they think and what they are doing about it.Those diverse stories help usto think more deeply – about what we
believe and why.
Our guests engage in in-depth conversations about our past, present and future. We talk about
the economy, our religious views, schools, courts, wolves, medicine, the timber industry, conservation, life in prison, life
on the farm . . . We discuss our most serious personal, political and community values, and our place in the larger world.
We honestly explore conflict and controversy, and at the
same time honor our shared values – the often-overlooked "common ground" of diverse community interests. We
treat our guests and audience with respect – at times by asking fair, tough questions.
Our listeners appreciate hearing differing
viewpoints, and care about our shared responsibility as informed citizens of the West, the United States, and the world.
On the air more
than 17 years, we’ve done almost 900 shows.One listener describes Home Ground as "a cumulative
portrait of our culture in transition."We appreciate the compliment.
