Iowa Week: Jobs That Have Changed Dramatically

Dec 28, 2015

This edition of River to River kicks off Iowa Public Radio’s Iowa Week with the theme “then and now.”

The focus this hour is on jobs that have been transformed over the decades. Host Ben Kieffer talks with three journalists: Steve Berry, Sarah McCammon, and Dean Borg, who together have more than 100 years of work experience in journalism. Then, former Des Moines Police Chief Judy Bradshaw talks about how law enforcement has changed, and finally, Kieffer visits a blacksmith in Kalona to hear how that trade has endured into the 21st Century.
