Today:    Indiana economist-writer-speaker Morton Marcus is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his latest "Eye on the Pie" columns about the Hoosier economy during the COVID-19 pandemic and other topics.  Dr. Maggie Stevens and Tiffany Powell with "Foster Success" will also tell us about a new college readiness program coming to northwest Indiana that will benefit young people from foster homes, leading them to a  better transition to college.  Powell's been named as the director for the new program. And we have conversations with two  Hoosiers who've endured the pandemic for the past year -- a school bus driver from Valparaiso who also is a delivery person for Instacart, and a high school teacher from western Indiana.
