RCFL Staff members Dylan Walker and Bex Klafter have conducted interviews in this 10-part series podcast of 30 minute episodes highlighting stories from North Minneapolis. This podcast provides a platform for residents in North Minneapolis to tell their stories through in-depth interviews with specific focus on just how North Minneapolis has shaped their lives, their views of what it takes to create beloved community, and whether or not they have experienced beloved community themselves.


Through this podcast, we hope to listen to and learn from our neighbors, all the while sharing the stories with all of you. non-profit

“I love the intentionality of the people here. It’s always the people who make the place… What keeps me here is definitely the people, and just the intentionality and the relationships and the authenticity and what I like to call the radical hospitality. I think that’s really beautiful and I haven’t seen that elsewhere... but it’s really deeply rooted here… cultivated over generations… I really appreciate that.” -- Joe Davis
