In The Moment … June 29, 2020 Show 848 Hour 1

Much of the attention during the COVID-19 pandemic has been focused on American cities like New York, Detroit, and Houston. In South Dakota, the largest virus cluster has been in the state's largest city Sioux Falls. But South Dakota's small towns are also feeling the crushing economic impact of the pandemic, along with health concerns and increased isolation in areas of the state that are already isolated.  Bart Pfankuch joins us today. He is content director and an investigative reporter with South Dakota Newswatch. He joins us to talk about a new series you can find on sdnewswatch.org. It's called "Small Towns, Big Challenges," and it is supported by Facebook's COVID-19 Local News Relief Fund Grant program.
