Today:  an extended conversation with State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) and State Senator Greg Taylor (D-Indianapolis) about the series of Indiana Black Legislative Caucus statewide Town Hall meetings, ending in Gary on August 19th in the Bergland Auditorium at the Savannah Center of Indiana University Northwest in Gary.  Both Melton and Taylor have attended some of the other Town Hall meetings in other Hoosier cities.

Senator Melton also talks about the appointment of an emergency manager for the fiscally- and academically-troubled Gary Community School Corp.  The Senator introduced a bill last General Assembly session, which became law, calling for the procedure to select the emergency manager.

And "CounterPoint" host Garrard McClendon and his guests talk about whether athletes should be able to express their personal views (political or not), or if they should just remain quiet and play their sport.  The conversation  aired recently on Lakeshore PBS.
