This week we’ll be talking to supporters and opponents of the Illiana, ahead of a key vote in Illinois Thursday. In this show, Host Steve Walsh  talks to an advocate for Toll Roads who is skeptical of the Illiana Tollway Project.

Despite a drop in new foreclosures, home repossessions remain high in Indiana. We talk to Realtytrac about the spike in repossessions.

We reach out to some local profs to find out if there is any way around the log-jam in Washington. An economist from Indiana University Northwest and a political science professor from Purdue University Calumet square off.

And we’ll dive deep into a program in Gary to reach out the families of each homicide victim – as authorities report the city has reached the same number of murders as in all of 2012.


Guests include:

Tollroads News Editor Peter Samuel

Daren Blomquist, vice president at Realtytrac

Purdue Calumet Associate Professor of Political Science Richard Rupp

Micah Pollak from IUN School of Business and Economics
