Vaccine misinformation and 'Pandora Papers' fallout


In the Moment is SDPB’s daily news and arts program.

South Dakota is once again facing double-digit COVID deaths this week. Monument Health's Dr. Shankar Kurra joins us with a state public health update

A pregnant person who contracts COVID is 20 times more likely to die than one who doesn’t. On Call with the Prairie Doc® physician Deb Johnston, M.D., helps us understand maternal mortality and what we need to do to protect mothers.

SDSU political science professors David Wiltse, Ph.D., and Lisa Hager, Ph.D., revisit the Pandora Papers and ask whether federal intervention is ahead for the South Dakota trust industry. We also talk about redistricting in South Dakota.

We Take A Moment for some public radio history. We hear audio from the late Frank Tavares. During his life, he recorded hundreds of NPR funder credits for three decades and was known as the authoritative "voice of NPR."

Journalist Charlotte West followed the stories of three Native American women heading to college during the height of pandemic closures. Cante Skuya Lonehill-Stover arrived at Augustana University in Sioux Falls to find herself one of 11 Native students. We talk about the year that unfolded, how success is measured, and how universities can go beyond land acknowledgments to meaningful efforts to engage indigenous learners.

SDPB's Nate Wek has the story of a high school soccer player whose injury kept her off the field — until she was tapped to kick the winning goal.
