  • In the final episode of season one, we’re turning things over to River Town Producer Tadeo Ruiz. Tadeo is pretty new to Missouri – via Mexico City - and he’s been surprised to learn about how much people here love the river. But during his reporting for River Town, he started to feel connected with one Missouri River town in particular… Rocheport. Follow him along his journey as he gets to know the river and the people who love it.
  • Water is life. It gets us places. Connects us to each other. It holds history and tradition. It keeps all these things, and us, alive. History, and modern stories, show us this. For this episode, we explored these connections by documenting modern Indigenous relationships to the Missouri River and other sacred waters, caught a boat ride with historian and author Greg Olson, and observed a water blessing at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.
