On today's show

If you've been caught up in swirls of dust buffeted by prairie winds lately, you might be wondering if we have entered another Dust Bowl of sorts. We talk about the removal of windbreak trees in East River, drought, how topsoil journeys from one place to another, and how to prevent it. We also talk with sports broadcaster Mike Henricksen about his career. Plus, Kevin Woster explores the conversation around removing certain books from a school.
