Last Week in Mpls podcast #2

Target's red army.

Target’s red army.

Last Week in Mpls is a podcast is where two young-ish guys goof around about local news. It’s hosted by me, Scott Shaffer, and my friend Tom Johnson of Stubble Magazine.

This week we talked about the Green Line, layoffs at Target, the free-parking spat at 50th and France, and how hard it is to meet people in the Twin Cities. I quizzed Local Cool Person Erica Mauter about the WNBA, and Tom interviewed his friend Jake (who just returned from China) about Taco Bell. Local hip hop group Glow Mechanics provided music.
