This episode of MPR's Voices of Minnesota features conversations with Art Aufderheide and Clarke Chambers, two detectives of sorts.  

Aufderheide is world famous for his study of mummies and the diseases that killed them.  Chambers is a historian and the founder of a one-of-a-kind archive of social welfare history in this country.
