Today:  Documentary filmmakers Pat Wisniewski and Tom Desch are in the Lakeshore Public Radio studio  to talk about their films --  ones that've aired on Lakeshore PBS and upcoming projects -- and Tom talks about a years-long project on the controversial proposed south suburban Chicago airport -- a film titled "The Field: A Fight or Flight Story."  It comes up at a special screening soon at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. We bring you another conversation from the Welcome Projet at Valparaiso University, and we revisit our conversation with a Ball State University professor about "the Sweetheart Index" which looks at corporations and the link between contracts and political donations.

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.
