Today:  We begin our series of conversations with northwest Indiana state legislators with Democratic state Representative Lisa Beck.  This is the Lake County lawmaker's first General Assembly session, having taken over for Republican Julie Olthoff.  She talks about her impression of the Statehouse, the bills she sponsored and how they've fared, and her look at the two-year state budget that she and her colleagues will vote on this month.  We also talk with Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra conductor Kirk Muspratt about May 17th's Pops concert that is just "out of this world."

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.
