The best of 2021 on MPR News with Angela Davis with producer Maja Beckstrom

All this week, we’re listening back to some of the conversations we’ve had on this show over the past year. This hour, producer Maja Beckstrom joins host Angela Davis to share some of the shows that stood out to her.  

We’ll learn more about the grief of losing the language of parents and grandparents. It’s a topic that hit home for many listeners, including new immigrants and refugees, Indigenous people and also Minnesotans whose ancestors came here generations ago. 

We’ll explore unconscious bias — what it is, the harm it causes and how to become aware of our bias. And, we’ll revisit a major story of the year — how overworked health care workers have struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Tune in again Wednesday for producer Samantha Matsumoto’s favorites as our look back at the best of 2021 continues.
