Dakota State University's cyber-capabilities are expanding into Sioux Falls. The Madison university has announced a $90 million investment into an applied research lab in the state's largest city. We're joined by DSU president José-Marie Griffiths.

Governor Kristi Noem is singling out a little-known tax for ridicule this legislative session. It taxes the products used in a game that was once very popular – bingo. SDPB's Seth Tupper explains in this installment of our legislative series, "Why is That."

Planned Parenthood of Northern Central States is preparing for a leadership change. For more than two decades Sarah Stoesz has had the helm. This fall, she'll step away. We welcome Stoesz for a look at how the organization has transformed over the past two decades and the work ahead in South Dakota and neighboring states.

We take a moment for Poetry from Studio 47. Today's featured poet is David Allan Evans, former South Dakota state poet laureate.

Poets and longtime friends Charles Luden and Steve Boint have paired up for a new collection titled Backyard Jubilee. In the collection, they explore the simplest of moments, from returning home from running errands to a blizzardy night. We're joined by both poets.
