First up, at 2:10pm, James speaks with Fairfield Ledger News Editor Andy Hallman about his work at one of the oldest establishments in the area and personal trajectory arriving at the News Desk in Fairfield back in January 2013.

His love of language and people informs all that he does. If you've ever thought about writing a 'Letter to the Editor', here's a chance to learn how to do it and who receives it.

At 3pm, Chuck Offenburger talks about his many years as a storied columnist for the Des Moines Register and current work as a semi-retired storyteller living on a farm in Cooper, Iowa he rehabbed with his wife Carla. She and Chuck work on their own website Offenburger.com launched back in 2001 sharing stories and pictures that highlight Iowa. He discusses his life, one of Fairfield's grandest characters Lee Gobble who recently passed away, the state of the state of Iowa, the state of journalism, and much more.
