On today's show...

Mifepristone, an abortion medication, is back in the headlines and its access back in jeopardy. Reporter Stu Whitney explored a local angle on this national story for SD News Watch.

Steve Drummond is a journalist for NPR and now a published author. His book "The Watchdog: How the Truman Committee Battled Corruption and Helped Win World War Two" is out now.

What can we learn about Gov. Noem's leadership style from her political origin stories? Seth Tupper, our Dakota Political Junkie, joins In the Moment to discuss just that. He unpacks his opinion piece about Gov. Kristi Noem's relationship with her father.

We listen to part two of Lori Walsh's conversation with Doug Murano. Murano is the founder and CEO of Bad Hand Books, a small publishing company in South Dakota. He and Lori discuss fear, the human pull to violence and censorship.

Plus, W. Carter Johnson, Ph.D., brings us unbelievable stories from his family's independent hardware store. His new book "Ten Square Blocks" shares an insider account of the people who worked or shopped at the store.
