Regionally Speaking, Wednesday, August 25, 2021


Today: Northwest Indiana coordinator for "Resilience Cohort" Kathy Sipple is back on "Regionally Speaking" with her earlier conversation on this summer's greenhouse gas emissions inventory project with participating municipalities. It's part of a statewide effort to better understand such emissions, and how communities can reduce them.  Team members in the participating communities are wrapping up their work. Indiana Public Broadcasting's Rebecca Thiele has a report on how federal funds will support upcoming research on relying more on insects to help feed livestock, pets and perhaps ourselves as well.  Film producer Peter Samuelson, the organizer of a campaign to get 430,000 signatures on petitions, calls for an end to for-profit foster care -– thru FixFosterCare.org -- and Jeffery London, director of Loan Guaranty Service at the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, joins us to give an update on the VA Home Loan Program and an expanded nationwide effort of save veterans who are homeowners from losing their homes to foreclosure. 

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.
