If you enjoy weather and climate conversation, this is the podcast for you. It's Minnesota-based so its main focus is on what's happening in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. 

The hosts are Jim du Bois and climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld, and in this week's episode they discuss the hot weekend weather, torrential rains in southeastern Minnesota, record-shattering heat in Europe, the most glorious June on record (according to the Glory Index), potential severe weather on Saturday and Sunday, and a wet, unsettled week ahead.
