The suspected gunman who shot and killed three first responders in Burnsville couldn't legally own guns. We talked to a journalist covering gun violence about how guns are still able to be illegally obtained.

A local percussionist is beating to the sound of his own drum, and we asked him how his life as a Buddhist priest informs his music.

In our Connect the Dots series we talk to the director of Minnesota’s premiere choir, “Vocal-Essence.” Hear the life-long love story between Phillip Brunelle and music.

We’ll meet the oldest living Gold Star mother here in Minnesota, who is sharing her memories at 105. Last but not least, and a southern Minnesota wildlife photographer will share how this warm winter is affecting his work.
