Today:   We continue our conversations with northwest Indiana legislators with state Representative Ed Soliday (R) of Valparaiso.  He had several bills that he introduced not only get through the General Assembly this session, but were signed into law by Governor Eric Holcomb.    We also have a conversation with a media giant:  C-SPAN creator and native Hoosier Brian Lamb. He talks about growing up in Lafayette, attending Purdue, getting started in broadcasting in his hometown and coming up with the concept that has grown to several cable television channels. Brian's stepped away from regular hosting duties at C-SPAN and is now doing occasional programs.
