Today:  Porter County Sheriff Dave Reynolds is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about law enforcement-related measures that made it through the 2021 General Assembly session to become law that affect criminal justice reform.  They include changes involving juveniles. We talk with Tom Murphy, the new acting under-secretary for benefits with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs about some new initiatives that can transform veterans' lives.  Region native and documentary producer Dan Zancam created a series called "History Alive" and his latest episode examines some little-known facts about the Old Lake County Jail.  We talks with him about that and what he has planned for the future.  And "Post-Tribune" reporter Hannah Reed talks about her recent stories in print and online, two of them some post-pandemic "good news" stories.

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.
