In the Moment with Lori Walsh: March 23, 2021 Show 1014

Hour 1

  • The open Legislature we know today - every bill gets a hearing, and always in public - wasn't always so. Terry Woster (who coverd the state Capitol for four decades) and others explain how closed the Legislature once was, and how it got opened up in Seth Tupper's latest Why is That?


  • In Their Own Words brings us a bill (SB 166) that seeks to revise provisions regarding hate crimes by adding people to the list of who should be protected from those crimes.


  • Governor Noem says Title IX is under attack and has launched a coalition to protect fairness in women's sports. But does Title IX really block transgender girls from playing sports with cisgender girls? Sarah Axelson, senior director at the Women's Sports Foundation, explains what Title IX is and isn't.


  • The pandemic is supercharging future advancements in public health, vaccine development, and genetics? Do we have the regulatory framework to deploy these advances fairly, ethically, and wisely? Jamie Metzl is a futurist and the author of the book "Hacking Darwin."

Hour 2

  • How is a $300 million dollar donation to Sanford Health set to transform medicine in rural areas? It begins by educating the physicians and specialists of the future. We're joined today by Sanford Health CEO Bill Gassen.


  • FRONTLINE's "Death Is Our Business" explores the role of Black funeral homes in New Orleans during the time of COVID-19. We look at grief, loss, and celebration.


  • We check in with the airport in Sioux Falls for a look at new flights, pandemic protocols, and travel over Spring break.
