OMGDSM is an audio exploration of the past, present and future of Des Moines, IA. Through in-depth interviews and engaging stories, we try to understand the city’s people, its culture, its energy and its identity. We talk to newsmakers, organizers, activists and advocates, about what Des Moines means to them, and how they’re trying to make Central Iowa (and the world) a better place.
What makes Des Moines unique? Why do people choose to live here? How can we expect it to evolve? What are its assets and obstacles as it works to raise its profile in the Midwest and around the world? What is there to do on a Saturday night? How can you get involved? We’ll tackle these questions and more, in an accessible, portable listening format.
We’re in the process of creating our first few episodes.
