in_the_moment_052421.jpg

In the Moment, May 24, 2021 Show 1055.

Michelle Kane, Director, South Dakota CEO/Women's Business Center, offers tips on how to let your customers know that you have reopened your business.

Dr. Shankar Kurra joins us for a COVID update. We'll talk about standing down from the surge preparations and how efforts to encourage vaccinations are now focused on personal conversations.

Connecting to Community is a public media collaboration that celebrates rural stories, searches for shared values, and rethinks the very definition of home. Shane Nordyk, Ph.D. leads the Chiesman Center for Democracy at USD. She joins us to look at data from the Coming Home project. 

We take a moment for South Dakota History: We explore the wild, the scenic and the recreational as we remember efforts to protect and preserve America's great rivers.  

What if our forefathers had excavated a canal between Lake Traverse and Big Stone Lake. What if they had gone further and created an international shipping route? For this week's Images of the Past, we explore a big idea that turned out to be too big for reality. SDPB's Heather Benson has the story.

We listen to part of Katie Dwyer's Moment In Sound from February. She's featured in the new Tiger Meat music zine.
