The Ohmicron variant of SarsCo-V-2 has been detected in Minnesota, even as the Delta variant remains top concern for public health officials. Dr. Shankar Kurra with Monument Health joins us for our weekly COVID-19 update.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is more than three decades old. Several businesses and tourist attractions remain inaccessible which makes it tough for disabled people to know where they can easily visit. There's a volunteer organization in Rapid City that is working on both of those issues. SDPB's Arielle Zionts has more.
Monetary policy is expected to be consistent rather than politicized. Macroeconomist Joe Santos joins us to talk about the politics and economics of succession for the chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. We'll explore the potential impact of President Biden's choices for battling the current spike in inflation.
We 'Take A Moment' to remember Bob Bole.
For this week's Images of the Past segment, we explore the 92-year history of fair food from Shorty's Hot Dog Stand at the South Dakota State Fair. SDPB's Brian Gevik has the story of how a hot dog stand became a focus for five generations of a far-flung family.
Not every South Dakotan packs away their cycling gear when the weather turns and the wind blows. Patrick Lalley joins us to talk about the growth of competitive cycling opportunities in the state, Falls Area Singletrack, and fat-tire winter biking.
