Straight out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin comes a fun (if not funny!), informal, and upbeat monthly audio and video podcast featuring key local topics, engaging and insightful guests, and the diverse voices of local writers, talkers, and pontificators.


Ep. 8: Hop Aboard the Chippewa Valley Choo Choo. Guest: Sarah Larsen

talking trains (and more!) with panelists Christina Wolff and Eric Rasmussen

April 20, 2021

You know the saying: April showers bring May… events? Well, that’s definitely the case, as the Chippewa Valley opens things back up after a year of COVID quarantines, and that’s the topic of conversation in episode 8 of the Volume One Podcast.

Panelists Christina Wolff and Eric Rasmussen join us on the pod to chat about choo choos (or snazzy new Amtrack trains, for us adults here in the room) slated to hit the Chippewa Valley, a local amateur historian preserving history from the passenger seat of his 1971 Plymouth Satellite, and Farm Technology Days slated to roll into Eau Claire (with highly anticipated performances from Chris Kroeze)!

Later we’re joined by the incredible Sara Larsen of Downtown Eau Claire Inc., to chat about Creative Economy Month, which celebrates the blossoming creative movement in Eau Claire.

Then, we play a thrilling game of “Run the Numbers” with a whole heckuva lotta lambs, “Director’s Chair” with dorky movie titles and living sculptures in downtown Eau Claire, and wrap things up with “What’s in the Koozie”?

It’s a silly one, so get into it! Find this and other episodes in both audio and video formats on our site at
