Podcast: the Triumvirate on other local civic bloggers

Tracy, Griff, RossRoss’ post on Tuesday, Highlighting Other Local Blogs (in which he managed to highlight only one), prompted us to do a show on the local civic-oriented bloggers whose feeds we currently aggregate on our right sidebar.

It also prompted us to move up the aggregator widget, as well as shrink the number of/character count of the comments displayed at the top of the sidebar so as to give the bloggers more prominent sidebar real-estate. Let us know (comment here or Contact Us) what you think about these changes.

Bloggers featured in the podcast:

And see the Locally Grown Local Civic Blogosphere page for an updated list of local civic-oriented blogs. Let us know (comment here or Contact Us) if I’m missing any.

Our radio show/podcast, Locally Grown, usually airs Wednesdays at 5:30 PM on KYMN 1080 AM.


  1. Thanks for the plug for those of us toiling in the cyber-fields and blogging locally, guys!

    (Shameless self-promotion warning.) Tracy, you mentioned barrel-lust: get your rain barrel order in soon–I’ve drained all 70 bourbon barrels I dragged up here (tough work, but someone’s gotta do it!), 62 are spoken for, and only 8 remain. Northfielders have ordered 8 of these beauties, with an embarrassing 54 being picked up by/delivered to folks from the Twin Cities, Marine on St. Croix, St. Peter and LeSueur. C’mon, Northfield!

    Griff and Tracy –

    I listened to the podcast and thought it was a fun show. However, it seemed that the energy kind of died with my departure. 😉

    Actually, the only true constructive criticism that I have to offer is that you might have cycled back to the concept of “expert guest bloggers”, or whatever we’re calling them, and re-extended the invitation, as well as started generating ideas from our listeners about topics that might benefit from such experts.

    Now that I think about it, perhaps you could have also encouraged other Northfield-area folks with ideas and opinions to start their own blogs and get aggregated with the rest of us “B-List” celebrities”.
