Today:  Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor spokesman Anthony Swinger is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about ways that northwest Indiana residents can save money this winter on their heating bills, or get help in paying them.  This includes the federally-funded LIHEAP program.  Regional farmer Keith Kudla, the CFO of Artesian Farm, talks about his unique business, using an old building to house vertical hydroponic agriculture technology -- an operation that uses 98% less land and 95% less water to grow green crops that can be harvested 365 days a year. Artesian Farm's crops are marketed to customers in Midwest cities like Merrillville and Michigan City through "Market Wagon."

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
