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.
