Do Midwesterners have loose lips? Adam Wren relies on our inherent friendliness to get the scoop on what's happening in Indiana. As a teenager, Adam found himself following current events and reading about people traveling around to capture stories, so he pursued journalism at Indiana Wesleyan and Northwestern as a first-generation college student. Now he is living out that dream as a contributing editor at POLITICO Magazine and Indianapolis Monthly and as the founder and publisher of IMPORTANTVILLE - a newsletter about politics and business in Indiana. A play off of Donald Trump's name for South Bend, IMPORTANTVILLE shares the facts that Adam learns in a more real-time form. Adam writes many of his pieces like a short story, essentially "dating" his subject until he uncovers enough to write about them. Tune in to hear about the life of Pete Buttigieg, the only lawyer with manslaughter on his record, what it's like to live like Donald Trump in Chicago for a night, and how Adam is able to capture his captivating stories. Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you this week with Adam Wren of IMPORTANTVILLE.
