Dakota Political Junkies & Earth Day conversations

On today's In the Moment...

SDPB's Jordan Rusche heads to college campuses to learn how professors are planning to address artificial intelligence in the classroom. Some are concerned with catching plagiarism, and some are working the software into lesson plans.

Carrie Olson-Manning, Ph.D., studies an evolutionary arms race happening in your backyard. She previews her "Monarchs and Milkweeds" presentation at the upcoming Discovery on Tap! event.

Our Dakota Political Junkies explore the political futures of a few South Dakota politicians. David Wiltse, Ph.D., and Lisa Hager, Ph.D., help listeners navigate the ever-changing political landscape.

We'll then explore how some South Dakota communities are celebrating Earth Day on Saturday. Travis Entenman is helping lead a clean-up event along the Big Sioux. The annual Friends of the Big Sioux River event seeks to pull trash and debris from the eastern South Dakota river.

From the riverbank, we'll head to a forest sprouting along one town's streets. Josh Bauman is the interim assistant director of parks, recreation and forestry in Brookings. He joins to discuss their Urban Forest Initiative.
