The Indiana State Fair is back this year. Today we find out what’s being planned, and how to stay safe at the fair.

We also get an update on the governor’s emergency powers case, and an overview on the biggest news stories of the last week. And we talk to the leaders of a theatre collective in Bloomington about inclusivity on stage.
