Hello, world. Meet the 'Up North Lowdown,' a new podcast from IPR

Each week, you’ll hear sound-rich stories from northern Michigan, interviews with journalists and newsmakers, and some of the other things making news in our state — all in about 15 minutes.

We love telling stories.

Where else can you hear — literally, hear — about Petoskey's incredible high school steel drum band, or a burning snowman, or the pressures facing our local economy, or the local curling community ...

... or, or, or ... the list goes on.

For decades, we've aired stories like this during our morning and afternoon news broadcasts. But what happens if you aren't listening to the radio at the precise time we play a great story?

You miss the good stuff, that's what happens.

Let's fix that.

You live here. You love this place. You want to know about it. We can help.
