Today:  Indiana University Northwest professors Linda Galocy and Dorinda Sattler are on "Regionally Speaking" with their earlier conversation on privacy laws during the COVID-19 pandemic -- and what businesses can ask of their customers and of their employees.  State Senator Karen Tallian (D-Ogden Dunes) talks about her demand that the state Department of Workforce Development stop demanding that "gig economy" Hoosiers who received pandemic unemployement benefits repay the state for the benefits. And Side Effects Public Media's Carter Barrett has a conversation with colleague Lauren Bavis on the impact of ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations. An Indianapolis-based healthcare provider is still trying to bring affected systems back online, two weeks after the hackers' attack.
