Today we spend the hour catching up with public media reporters around the state, to dig a little deeper into their latest stories.

We find out how an amateur historian discovered details on the first black woman to graduate from an Indianapolis high school, talk to our workforce reporter in Elkhart to learn about a dispute over a local union’s giant inflatable rat, and much more.

Produced by Drew Daudelin.
