Kurt heads back to his hometown. No longer just beef and Warren Buffett, Kurt finds a vibrant indie rock, film, and visual arts scene there. Artists, politicians and philanthropists –- including filmmaker Alexander Payne and Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst –- tell us what makes Omaha so nice to come home to. And we hear from other musicians on Omaha’s hot Saddle Creek label, including the tap-dancing percussionists of Tilly and the Wall. Produced by Studio 360's Derek John and Pejk Malinovski.
