Regionally Speaking, Monday, March 5, 2018


Today:   a conversation with  Purdue University Northwest associate professor psychology Christina Ragan and Liz Bernel with the university's Art Collections and Special Events, about Tuesday's "Brain Awareness Day" on the Westville campus and a week-long accompanying art exhibit in the Gallery in the Library-Student-Faculty Building.

We begin a three-part series of features from Indiana Public Broadcasting's Emilee Syberg on low-income housing across Indiana with a focus on one region.  IPB News reporter Samantha Horton also visited some of the Hoosier liquor stores that were open on Sundays, for the very first time and we bring you her report.

Northwest Indiana political activist Ruth Needleman joins us in the studio for an update on events just occurred, ones coming up and her concerns and views on communities, the environment and social justice. And we revisit our recent conversation with Urban League of Northwest Indiana president-CEO Dr. Vanessa Allen McCloud about the March 22nd Diversity and Inclusion Awards program.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
