Today:  Amateur Gary historian and Facebook group leader Korry Shepard is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his love of history in his hometown and seeks answers to his questions. One question is: why are there so many abandoned houses in Gary?  He brings up the subject of historic housing discrimination in the city.  Pediatrician Dr. Tina Tan talks about the importance of getting youngsters ready for in-person learning this year with vaccination.  The delta variant is affecting children at a higher rate than previous variants of the virus. Dr. Tan is an attending physician with the Lurie Childrens' Hospital in Chicago.

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.
