Nathan Hofer, Director of Community Impact, says, “Community conversations are very exciting for us and for the communities. We get to join people in and around each town and share in their passion for their home as we prepare to share that passion with the rest of the state through our Dakota Life episodes.”
For over 25 years, Dakota Life, SDPB's magazine television show, has celebrated all of the stories that make South Dakota unique, one community at a time. Now, with a new framework and a special emphasis on individual towns in each episode, community members are sharing their stories with SDPB staff and producers at community conversations. Stories are told all over the state, across the country, and around the globe on SDPB.
