Today:  Indiana Humanities staffmember Megan Telligman joins us to talk about the speakers who will be coming into northwest Indiana over the next few months, as part of the "INseparable" initiative.  The speakers will help residents better understand and talk about urban, suburban and rural differences and connections.  Speaking locations include the Lake County and Crown Point Community Libraries and LaPorte County Library.  Union electrician Roman Bronson with the "Indiana Plan" talks about next Wednesday's free Construction Trade Seminar in Gary, to encourage interested residents in careers in the union construction trades in northwest Indiana. And activist Ruth Needleman is in the studio with more topics that include trauma, immigration and what are called "community benefits agreements" that lead to better wages.
