Today:  It's "Reporters Roundtable Thursday" and "Times" chief political reporter Dan Carden joins us to talk about his stories in print and posted online, including his coverage of the first Indiana gubernatorial debate from Indianapolis and his story on First Congressional District candidate Mark Leyva's comments posted on his Facebook page and reaction to them.  "Post-Tribune" columnist Jerry Davich created what he called a "psychological experiment" and later wrote about it:  he bought and wore Trump and Biden-Harris campaign T-shirts in public for one month.  Jerry talks about the reaction he got from residents at the time and of comments that were posted later to his Facebook pages.  And we complete our four-part series on young Indiana activists from the  "America Amplified: Election 2020" initiative, using community engagement to inform and strengthen local, regional and national journalism. "America Amplified" is a public media initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
