Description: Welcome to the world's first video-streaming oral history website of journalists. We chose the state of Iowa for two reasons: Because we live and work here; And because Iowa is home to more newspapers per capita than any other state. Iowa has 41 daily and 298 weekly newspapers spread out through the state's 99 counties. That abundance of newspapers has made Iowa into a national laboratory. For more than a century, newspapers have been an essential tool for Iowans, particularly rural Iowans, in developing a sense of community building.
