Michigan City Pride Fest on June 18th

  • June marks Pride Month, a time to celebrate the LGBTQ community as well as a time to reflect on the movement that continues to push for full and equal rights for members of the community. Lakeshore Public Radio is dedicated to inclusion and diversity in every aspect of our community. PFLAG Michigan City volunteer and Pride Fest committee member Cory Sollar is on Lakeshore Public Radio to discuss all of the events planned in Porter County.
  • Today: Alfred "Chip" Cooke, the Agent In Charge for northern Indiana for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, is on "Regionally Speaking" to discuss the latest provisional report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which shows that in Indiana, the number of overdose deaths hit a record high for a second year in a row to an estimated 2,755. Eighty-five percent of those Hoosier OD deaths were due to fentanyl. He emphasizes once again the dangers of fentanyl, especially the illegally-created version which is being mixed into other substances. "Times" chief political reporter Dan Carden is back to talk about the stories he's put out lately in print and online, most of them stories centering around a possible General Assembly special session if the U.S. Supreme Court authorizes states to further restrict or ban abortions.
