Startup Story - Dorothy’s House with Kellie Markey

She was one of the first 190 people to work at eBay where she earned a top spot in the company before leaving to return to Iowa. On her return Kellie Markey made the decision to go from for-profit to non-profit and founded Dorothy's House a sanctuary for children who have been sold into the sex traffic rings. With Kellie is our friend Kyle Oppenhuizen sitting in for Mike Colwell from SquareOne DSM. This next Startup Story is different but in a good way to register click here. Listen and get ready for an experience that will make you shudder.

GiGi’s Playhouse with Andie Kreutz

The story that Andie Kreutz shared with us about down Down syndrome is, as she says, "pretty typical". Her involvement with GiGi's Playhouse - Down Syndrome Achievement Center began when a family member gave birth to a child with Down. That event set her on a path of volunteerism and activity on behalf of individuals and families. Here we talk about GiGi's Playhouse; what it does, why, and who is involved. We also preview a special fund raising gala, "I Have a Voice - Vintage Circus" which takes place on 25 February. Here is a link for tickets.

Cycling, Economics, RAGBRAI and The Bike Expo

We pack a bunch of information and fun in this interview with Mark Wyatt from the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and Scott Garner from RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). From trying to get Scott to fess up and share the 2017 RAGBRAI Route prior to the Route Party to the Bike Expo happening this weekend. We also talk about bicycles and public policy and how cycling has given many small rural communities a rebirth in their economic development. Told you...lots to digest here. Listen in.

Helping People - Employee & Family Resources

There is a 52 year old agency in the Des Moines Metro that is doing major work in the areas of mental health, drug interaction, family counseling and more. To give us a glimpse of what Employee and Family Resource does we invited Leslie Garman the Community Engagement Director to our studios for a conversation. We think you too will be impressed and, perhaps, moved to help them in their mission.

Unity Point Transplant Center - It Matters
