On today's In the Moment...

We get a commercial review of the 2023 legislative session from David Owen. Owen is the president of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce & Industry. He speaks with Lori Walsh ahead of his speech with the Spearfish Area Chamber of Commerce.

Debra Johnston, M.D., examines the challenges and barriers between underserved groups and the health care they need. She's our On Call with the Prairie Doc representative this week.

What's better than a book club with friends? According to Jacqueline Palfy, the answer is a book club with strangers.

She leads REACH Literacy's monthly community book club where she welcomes members to discuss what they loved and hated about the picks. Palfy especially loves hearing what they hated.

Plus, do you know where the clothes you're wearing came from? What about where they'll end up when you're done with them?

Maxine Bédat explores the lifecycle of clothing from the cotton fields to the landfill in her book "Unraveled: The Life and Death of a Garment." She joins In the Moment to discuss the human and environmental costs of fast fashion.
