The flood that was and the floods of the future

On today's show...

In late June, the Big Sioux River crested to record levels. We get a hydrology lesson from state geologist Tim Cowman on what happened and why.

He explains how several factors came together to create a complex flooding event and why we need to plan for future floods of this magnitude.

Our Dakota Political Junkies ask why Gov. Kristi Noem's state-affiliated social media accounts went dark. Michael Card, Ph.D., and Jon Hunter look at what constituents and the press lost with the deletion.

Plus, we hear a musical conversation between an oboe and the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra.

Today’s Summer with the Symphony brings you a January performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s Oboe Concerto in C major featuring principal oboist Jeffrey Paul.
