The current issue of “South Dakota Magazine” highlights South Dakota's oldest town. Another feature explores warrior culture in the state as it intersects with Native American culture. We welcome Bernie Hunhoff and Katie Hunhoff for a conversation about the issue. Katie is publisher of South Dakota Magazine. Bernie is editor-at-large.

For the 26th time in state history, the state legislature convened for a special session in Pierre, this time to tackle a decades-old issue of public access to water over private land. Lawmakers voted to open these waters, called non-meandered bodies of water, for public use, unless a landowner declares otherwise. SDPB's Political reporter Lee Strubinger joins us from the capitol in Pierre to digest the special session and what comes next.
