Regionally Speaking, Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Indiana Public Media

Today:  We continue a look at the candidates running in the November 3rd general election, with the Indiana House District 19 race.  Incumbent Democrat Lisa Beck is seeking another term of office and former Representative Julie Olthoff, a Republican, is seeking a return to the position she held for two terms.  They talk about the issues, what they each want to achieve in the next General Assembly session and how they can campaign during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have the third of the four-part series of conversations with young Indiana activists with an IUPUI student who wants to protect a street that has historic significance for Indianapolis' Black community.  And we have an "Art On The Air" Spotlight that focuses on the LaPorte County music community.

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.
