Deep North explores the urbane side of the cities that the world, country, and even some Minnesotans haven’t experienced. From street theatre to fine art, ramen to injera, maple forests to grass that grows right up to the road, the north indeed extends much deeper than commonly known.
The show’s creator, Steve Ray, invites listeners to reimagine Minnesota, “After growing up in the cities I left, toured the U.S., backpacked through Europe, and sailed across the Atlantic. While traveling, it became obvious that the Minnesota I knew, was much different from the bleak perception held by the rest of the world.”
Independent podcasts, like Deep North offer space for people and places commonly ignored by traditional media. Listeners can expect to explore the built environment; the food scene, the art scene, and the sidewalk scene of MSP, speaking with the people they’ve never met standing right outside their door. Hidden no more, Deep North reminds listeners of the city’s energy and its potential to enhance the lives of those who call it home.
Steve Ray is a writer and and creator of shows like Farming god, a series on food and humanity featured in The Guardian. Prior, he sailed across the Atlantic and spread miles of smiles in the cockpit of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. More here.
