We’ve always published our newsletter and annual print edition as a love letter to Iowa.

But we’re not the only ones who love this place: Des Moines native Sarah Davis recently returned to the state after two decades away and started a new podcast, “Warmly, Iowa,” as her own ode to the Hawkeye State.

Davis studied at the University of Iowa, and her passion for travel took her to both U.S. coasts and abroad after graduation. The self-described digital nomad made her way home last year, and she’s intent on reacquainting herself with everything Iowa has to offer. That’s what prompted the podcast.

“It takes listeners on a journey of rediscovery as we explore the beauty and complexity of life in Iowa,” Davis said. The first season will cover pizza farms, agritourism and farming in your backyard. It’s available now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and several other podcast platforms.
