Airing Mondays at 1 P.M., TruthToTell is produced by CivicMedia/Minnesota as part of KFAI’s public affairs programming schedule. TruthToTell delves into issues often not covered in depth by other regional news and public affairs outlets and too often not with the goal of engaging citizens in resolving the critical state, local, and regional issues they face day-to-day.
