Today:   Bill Moreau, the co-founder of the Indiana Citizen Education Foundation and publisher of "The Indiana Citizen" online newsletter, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-partisan platform that is dedicated to inceasing the number of Hoosiers engaged and informed about civic matters.  The "Citizen's" main topic right now is political boundary redistricting.  We also revisit our conversation with activist and film producer Peter Samuelsen, the organizer of a campaign to get 430,000 signatures on a petition to end for-profit foster care.  State Senator Karen Tallian (D-Ogden Dunes) is pushing state officials to stop ordering Hoosiers who received pandemic unemployment benefit checks to return the money.  We revisit the conversation, along with one with Ivy Tech Community College Valparaiso chancellor Aco Sikoski on the new courses offered this semester to prepare students for jobs in the growing broadband communications industry.
