SDPB'S Nate Wek brings us a recap of the state tennis tournaments. He explains why certain neighborhoods tend to have more tennis stars than others.

Heather Gessner is an expert at helping farmers and ranchers navigate the complex world of estate planning. She joins to explain what farmers should keep in mind when planning for the future.

We take a moment for concrete dinosaurs in the Black Hills.

W. Carter Johnson, Ph.D., explains the ecological processes behind South Dakota's landscapes. He breaks down why West River looks so different from East River and unpacks his book "Ecology of Dakota Landscapes."
