The second wave of COVID-19 is upon us as the number of cases continues to increase. Today we get updates on this story and more, including highlights from the second gubernatorial debate.

We also talk to the recipient of a national wilderness stewardship award about her work at the Hoosier National Forest.

Plus, another update on the Indiana prison system's issues with staffing and employee retention, and a look at a new Audible Original lecture series about Edgar Allan Poe by a professor of English at IU Kokomo.
