SD Corn's new leader, a slash pile primer, and the state's affordable housing crisis

Thomas Hart Benton, Departure of the Joads, 1939

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

A slash pile primer. It's that time of year again. The U.S. Forest Service is beginning the work of burning woody debris in the Black Hills National Forest. We talk about what a slash (or burn) pile consists of and why safe removal is essential to a healthy forest.

SDPB's Arielle Zionts reports on the affordable housing crisis in South Dakota and how shortages are impacting workers in multiple layers of the economy.

Millbank native and South Dakota State University graduate DaNita Murray has been selected as the executive director of South Dakota Corn. She's with us today to discuss her visions for the future of this industry.

Shirley Mallow is an active volunteer in her church and the Black Hawk community. We take a moment now to listen to her discuss how a major medical event shifted her perspective.

Audio Postcard: Researchers at Black Hills State University in Spearfish are trying to learn more about red bellied snakes. SDPB's Michael Zimny journeys into the Black Hills with researchers turning over stones in search of the slithery creatures.

Jami Lynn and the JAS Quintet perform at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City this Friday. The group plans an acoustic set and an electric set. We talk with musicians ahead of the performance about hitting the road again, performing in front of live audiences, and creating new music together.

In the Moment airs live at 12CT/11MT. The audio from the day's show is attached soon after the show airs.
