In The Moment … January 21st, 2021 Show 975 Hour 2

We have a new president. A Heavily guarded inauguration ceremony went smoothly as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.

How will the country look different under his administration? How is he approaching the pandemic? Are South Dakotans in for any big changes?

And, in one of his last acts as president, Donald Trump raised eyebrows in South Dakota with the pardon of Paul Erickson who was sentenced to seven years in prison last year for defrauding investors.

For a look into these stories we welcome the Dakota Political Junkies: Jon Hunter, publisher of the Madison Daily Leader, and Mike Card, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of South Dakota.

Guests: Jon Hunter, and Michael Card.
