Betty Folliard, Founder, Minnesota ERA
Should gender equity be written into Minnesota law? For decades, advocates have been pushing for just that, and earlier this year they got a major win when the Minnesota House voted to put an Equal Rights Amendment in front of voters in 2020. Is this the time for the ERA in Minnesota? We’ll ask Betty Folliard, founder of ERA Minnesota. (Hint: she says yes!)

That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.
The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.
The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.
