Our Restaurant of the Week is +39 of Ames and Des Moines

Taking Off with Flite Brite

Any time we can capture the energy of our friend Ben McDougal it's well worth the effort to wrangle him into the studio. Today we're focusing on his new product FliteBrite! Think of the many times you go to a brew pub or a cheese shop or a wine tasting and you're sampling the product but you don't know the name of the product, the its makeup or you can't remember which you liked the most. The answer is in a new "digital paddle" that helps you not only capture that information but also share it. And for retailers it helps ID what is most popular among your guests. Interested?  We were...here's Ben!

Immigrant Heritage Month with Sanjita and Takur

Far too often the national discourse about immigrants tends to the negative. The Greater Des Moines Partnership thinks that is a mistake and that immigrants coming to Central Iowa can be and are responsible for a host of positive economic outcomes. To talk about that we invited Sanjita Pradhan the Program Director of Talent Development for the Partnership and Thakur Naupane. Both were refugees that came to Iowa and both have a great story to tell. We should add that Thakur came to the United States at 17, went to Job Corps and a few months ago opened up Kathmandu Restaurant. Enjoy this story we think it's much better than what we so often hear.
