Today:  We revisit our conversation with DEA Agent-In-Charge in northern Indiana Alfred "Chip" Cooke about the drug enforcement and prevention efforts because of the overdose pandemic, and in particular against fentanyl.  Indiana Public Broadcasting's Brock Turner has a report about having Indiana National Guard troops help overworked hospital workers as they deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases.  And we talk with former northwest Indiana legislator Chris Chyung, who is now working for the Washington, D.C. think tank "Center for American Progress."  He's spent a lot of time on state climate policy and lately, analyzing the reconciliation bill which is currently moving through Congress.

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.
