How Do We Remember Our Ugly Past?

Jul 9, 2020

25 years ago, a building contractor in Noblesville found an old trunk in a barn. When he opened it he found signatures. It was a membership list for the Ku Klux Klan during a period in the 1920's, all signatures of men who had lived in Hamilton County. But it was decided the documents would be concealed from the public. Now, for the first time, the documents are available.

The Amani Connection

Watching bird feeders has become a popular activity during the Covid-19 pandemic. But if you’re bored with the usual backyard visitors, the house finches, mourning doves, and robins, there’s a lot more of the birding world to explore.

A statewide moratorium on evictions has been extended through July due to the pandemic. For some, that’s still not enough time to catch up on past payments. And with expanded federal unemployment benefits set to expire at the same time, some say we're headed for a so-called “eviction cliff.”

Today we find out what assistance is available to renters and homeowners right now, and whether it will be enough.

Guests:
