Punk Rock in Indiana

May 19, 2021

Today we talk to a panel of musicians who helped pave the way for punk rock in Indiana, and learn about the history of the genre and how it has shaped the music scene in the Hoosier State. And we learn about a college course on the history of punk rock at Indiana University.

We also talk to an epidemiologist to catch up on recent changes around masking regulations from the CDC.

Produced by Tim Brouk and Mariam Sobh.
