Today: Just two weeks before a special legislative session is set to begin one where lawmakers say they'll be discussing new abortion restrictions -- the results of a new survey of Hoosier abortion seekers and physicians has just been released. We’ll hear from Dr. Tracey Wilkinson, one of the lead researchers representing Indiana University about those results. Greg Hammer is a NWI financial advisor. He shares tips and tools to prepare for retirement savings. And there have been two reported drownings in Lake Michigan in recent days. We revisit a conversation with Dave Benjamin with the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project about how to keep safe at Indiana beaches. All of that on this edition of Regionally Speaking.
