56 Counties

56 Counties: Reno Charette, John Robinson

Jul 1, 2019

Fifty Six Counties is a radio program hosted by Russell Rowland, author of the book Fifty-Six Counties: A Montana Journey. For the book, Rowland traveled to every county in Montana and interviewed the people there about what’s going on around the state, while also researching the history to find the parallels and patterns. 

The radio program is an extension of this conversation, with Rowland interviewing people from all over Montana to find out how Montana has shaped them, and what they’re doing to shape Montana. For the preimere episode, Russell chose two people from Rosebud County: Reno Charette, Director of the Native American Achievement Center at MSU Billings, and John Robinson, who recently retired as the Northern Cheyenne tribal judge.
