S02 E08 – Big Changes in Small Towns


Think about your community . . . What’s changed? Was your parents’ childhood different from your own?

And then ask yourself . . . What do you imagine your community will be like in another generation?

On this episode, a man wonders what the future will hold for his small Colorado community; and we sit down with James Fallows, a correspondent from The Atlantic and co-author of Our Towns: A 100,000 Mile Journey into the Heart of America.

Join J.R. and Kelsey as they discuss Big Changes in Small Towns.


  • The Evolution of a Small Agricultural Town
    An anonymous story as told to Adam Swanson from Facing Change in Northern Colorado.
    Performed by Carl Frost.
