Celebrate Earth Day with SD conservation conversations

On today's show...

The Bishop Dudley Hospitality House is set to expand. Madeline Shields, its executive director, shares what that means for families and kids experiencing homelessness.

There are a lot of pollutants swirling around South Dakota's lakes and streams but the quality is slowly improving. Travis Entenman, director of Friends of the Big Sioux River, discusses why more community members are rallying around our rivers.

We catch up with a local author on his novel inspired by real environmental crimes. Don Carr talks about how the smoke he saw billowing from Mount Vesuvius and the "James Bond" franchise inspired him to write a thriller.

Patrick Czerny, president of the Black Hills Dance Festival promises you'll go home tired on your feet after each day of an upcoming dance festival.

Champion dancer Kurt Senser joins the conversation to talk about stumbling into dance himself. The festival runs from April 25 to 27 in Rapid City.

Plus, we end the show with some poetry. High school senior Grace Powell, winner of South Dakota's Poetry Out Loud contest, performs for us.
