The View from Here

with Ed Holahan

Fridays at 8:00AM

Ed Holahan was born and raised in New York City, spent 35 years inventing toys and games in The Twin Cities and Chicago and moved to Market Farming in the Driftless in 2009. He and Mary Benson have been married for 42 years. They’re getting good at it.

“The View From Here” is a five minute essay. We’ll celebrate eleven years on the air in November of ’21. If you live long enough you get to share what you know. That’s why I write “The View”.

Ed lives in Viroqua between church bells and a nursing home.
