Home Ground Radio’s Brian Kahn

Brian Kahn is a Montana radio legend. As host of the long-running (23 years!) and award-winning “Home Ground Radio,” Brian has interviewed hundreds of influential Montanans, asking who they are, what they think and what they are doing about it. Today we flip the mic and ask Brian about his approach to storytelling, activism, collaboration and problem solving. We also discuss his new book, “America: Rediscovering my Country,” which documents a 50-day trip across the United States aimed at exploring diversity along many dimensions. His inquisitive spirit and Montana roots teach us how community can be built and appreciated in the most, or least, diverse environments.
