On today's In the Moment...

During the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve System sprang into action. We're now dealing with the repercussions of their actions.

Award-winning director James Jacoby explores that topic in his upcoming FRONTLINE documentary "Age of Easy Money." It airs Tuesday night on SDPB TV.

Tuesday is also the 26th Boe Forum on Public Affairs at Augustana University. The talk features the former prime minister of Norway who will dive into her sustainability efforts on the world stage.

We'll talk with David O'Hara, Ph.D., about the global fight against climate change and what Augustana students are doing here in South Dakota.

The 2023 legislative session has wrapped up. Will the state budget include increased funding assistance for health care providers? Tim Rave, president and CEO of the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations, joins In the Moment to discuss.

We'll also hear lawmakers debate a bill that would let people visit their deceased loved ones no matter where they're buried. That includes abandoned cemeteries that creep into private ownership.

Plus, "Sister Act" is sure to rock the rafters this weekend at the Black Hills Community Theatre. We talk to Kristol McKie, who is making her directing debut with the production.

Cara Hetland is the Director of Radio and Journalism Content for South Dakota Public Broadcasting.
Ellen Koester is a producer of In the Moment, SDPB's daily news and culture broadcast.
