This week, we’re looking back at some of the conversations host Angela Davis had in 2022 that resonated with us here at MPR News, and with you, our listeners. Producer Maja Beckstrom shares some of her favorites on Wednesday.

We’ll hear from two cardiologists about the high rates of heart attack, stroke and other heart diseases among Black Minnesotans and what’s being done to improve heart health. 

We’ll revisit our conversation on “news fatigue.” It’s been a year of distressing headlines. Even journalists are tempted to tune out sometimes. So, is there a way to stay informed that doesn’t leave us worn down and depressed?  

And we’ll share an inspiring conversation about education. Children lost ground during the pandemic. Volunteer tutors might be one way to help kids catch up

Producer Matt Alvarez will share some of his favorite shows on Thursday. And tune in at 9 a.m. on Friday to hear host Angela Davis’s best of 2022.
