A new story
Shannon Atwell and her family of four boys moved from a nice farm in Missouri to a cramped skid shack beside an oil rig in North Dakota. They moved to be with their father, Jesse, who works in the oilfield. With four young boys and a fifth due in January, she told me about what it's like to raise her young children in a 12 X 56 foot house with tanker trucks wheeling through her front yard every day. The story airs on Prairie Public Broadcasting today.
UPDATE - This story was picked up by Marketplace today! (Tuesday, December 5th) It will air on this afternoon's show.
