Two years ago, a worker at an Amazon facility in Plainfield, Indiana died after a 1,200 pound forklift crushed him.

After a state safety inspector found it might have happened due to a lack of training, he says Governor Eric Holcomb and other state officials worked to shift blame away from Amazon, hoping to avoid bad press while the state competed to host the company's new headquarters. Holcomb says it didn't happen.

The true crime genre has exploded in the last five years, especially in the world of podcasts. Since the release of the wildly popular “Serial” in 2014, countless true crime podcasts have emerged.

“Crime Junkie” is one of them. The show, produced in Indianapolis, is downloaded millions of times each week—but it’s faced harsh criticism for its loose, lighthearted approach and recent accusations of plagiarism.Since the hosts don’t claim to be journalists, should they get a pass?

More than 60 school districts across Indiana cancelled classes today, as thousands of teachers signed up to rally at the Statehouse ahead of the upcoming legislative session.

All IN: Sports Betting

Nov 18, 2019

It is now legal to bet on professional and college sports in Indiana. For the first month, only casinos could take official bets on games. But in October, after mobile betting was allowed, Hoosiers placed over $92 million in bets on sporting events.

Clearly, Hoosiers like to bet on sports. But can we expect these numbers to stay this high? And what does it mean for tax revenues?

All IN: Veterans' Mental Health

Nov 14, 2019

The suicide rate among veterans is twice that of the civilian population. Growing awareness of mental illness has prompted the VA and other veterans groups to better address mental health.

From his humble beginnings as an Indiana farmer, Birch Bayh went on to become the only person since the Founding Fathers to have steered two constitutional amendments to passage. As a U.S. Senator, Bayh became “the father of Title IX” and the author of landmark legislation that still impacts us today.
