Today on “Off Mic” with guest host Post-Tribune columnist Jerry Davich we’ll take a look at the broader picture behind all the “We’re Hiring” signs at local businesses, with insights from an economics professor at IUN about the ongoing "great reassessment of work,” as it’s called.

We’ll also hear from a Gary pastor who says he went through hell after contracting COVID-19 – “the worst 17 days of his life” – and how he now feels compelled to spread the gospel about vaccinations for the deadly virus.

And we’ll get introduced to the “Fighting Minds” campaign with one man’s journey of self-awareness about mental health and exercise. If time allows, we’ll also touch on the issue of mask mandates versus recommendations, and the upcoming 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. 

All this - and more – when we return with this week’s “Off Mic.”
