On Vows and Working Cows
No human is perfect. Not individually and surely not together. And especially not when working cows. This week Jessie sits down with her husband, Chad, and talks about marriage and ranch work, parenting and romance and the whole mess of what love and commitment really looks like. It gets western. It gets real and it gets a little sweet.

The Promise of a Greener Summer
This week it's all about the rain and the rain and the rain. After a long dry spell in Western North Dakota, the sky broke the silence and dropped almost five inches in a few days, filling the dams, cricks, and our hope. Jessie reflects on the stories we tell and the memories we revisit when the sky opens up.
