The "likelihood of potential further spread of omicron at the global level is high." That's according to the World Health Organization. Dr. Mike Wilde from Sanford Health joins us for what we know and don't know about a new COVID variant. We'll also talk about the emerging science of so-called long COVID, or COVID that devastates people for months on end.

Supply shortages of fertilizer and herbicide have doubled the prices for agricultural inputs. SDPB's Lura Roti explains how this is impacting farmers as they prepare for the upcoming growing season.

Your ability to leverage influence depends on your physical body and all its interconnections. Mel Schopp and Deb Soholt say it's time to take your body back. We talk with the Influential She founders about energy, hormones, and leadership.

We Take a Moment for South Dakota History. It was on this day, 22 years ago, that President Bill Clinton signed the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site Establishment Act. We remember the nuclear technology, the mission, and the people who stood ready to launch weapons of mass destruction upon the world.

For today's Images of the Past, we explore the long-gone University of South Dakota Springfield and how the place of higher learning was transitioned into a place of incarceration. SDPB's Brian Gevik has the story of higher education and its evolution in the state.

We explore a little comfort reading and comfort radio as author and broadcaster Mike Henricksen joins us to explore the Genuine Journeys of Life Vol. 2. The volume includes stories from KELO anchor Don Jorgenson, Watertown Pride leader Amy Rambow, and business leader Melissa Riggs Johnson.
