Today:  Chuck Harris and Dawn Pelc with the Porter County Substance Abuse Council are on "Regionally Speaking" with a previous conversation about the county's substance abuse issues and how the Council is working with addicts to keep them out of jail.  We revisit our conversation with Charmaine Bogue with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on the 77th anniversary of the GI Bill. Indiana Public Broadcasting's Rebecca Thiele has a report on what may be an unnecessary concern about banning reusable shopping bags from supermarkets during the COVID pandemic.  And Side Effects Public Media's Darian Benson continues her series of reports on Black women and HIV that includes a conversation with a woman who's been HIV-positive for 30 years.

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.
