This week, we are listening to the second conversation from the return of WBOI’s Issues & Ales. Our own Zach Bernard moderated a panel discussion about housing issues in northeast Indiana. The panel was followed by a Q&A with the audience.
The panelists are all part of the Fort Wayne Media Collaborative. This includes Fred McKissack, editorial page editor at the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, Kara Hackett, managing editor at Input Fort Wayne, and Julie Creek, project manager for the Fort Wayne Media Collaborative.
