Susan Patterson Plank, executive director of the Iowa Newspaper Association looks at fascinating happenings in small-town journalism (like a tiny Iowa paper taking home a Pulitzer Prize last year) and breaks down the data on readership around the state to debunk some familiar refrains and help us understand the real threats and new opportunities for journalism in rural areas.

Witching Hour is presented by the Englert Theatre and Little Village Magazine.

Recorded at the Iowa City Public Library on October 20, 2017.
