If there’s one thing Minnesotans will gladly talk about, it’s the weather. This is more than just the cliche safe subject to talk about – we really, REALLY get into talking about our weather, because our weather events are some of the most extreme in the nation.

And just as much as we love to talk about the weather, we love to be out in it. Minnesotans as a whole are hard-core outdoor enthusiasts. 

With this episode airing during Severe Weather Awareness week in Minnesota, we wanted to ask: What does the intersection of weather, the great outdoors, and climate change look like?
