Best of Living in Iowa 102

Nov 10, 2018 | 27 min

In this episode of the Best of Living in Iowa, we’ll revisit Iowan’s from the Greatest Generation who flew in the B-17 Flying Fortress on dangerous bombing missions during World War II; speak with Pahponee, a native American artist who tells stories through her pottery; and talk with David Belin, a Des Moines lawyer who was part of the Warren Commission that investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.



For 16 seasons, Living in Iowa was an omnibus television series that illustrated what it meant to be "uniquely Iowan." Through compelling human interest stories, it provided snapshots of Iowans representing every walk of life. As part of its 50th anniversary, Iowa PBS will revisit this popular series through The Best of Living in Iowa, a weekly program that features stories gathered from the archives of the original series. From this rich treasure trove of stories, viewers will relive moments from the past and be reminded of Iowa's unique heritage.
