The Exchange 10.05.22: Sioux Falls, "The Divorce Colony," Writer's Conference set for Friday; The brilliance of 19th century criminal Edward Ruloff
This week on The Exchange we talk with an award-winning author who has written new book about Sioux Falls when it was the divorce capital of the county for about 20 years during the Gilded Age. April White unearths the story of The Divorce Colony.
And as we anticipate Halloween, we talk with the host of the podcast Tenfold More Wicked Kate Winkler Dawson, about her new book about the nearly forgotten master criminal of the late 19th century, Edward Ruloff. It's called All That is Wicked.
We also have an update on the survivors of the Tanzania school bus crash who were treated at MercyOne here in Sioux City five years ago.
And we hear an episode from Siouxland Public Media's newest podcast LEAD, a series of conversations about leadership with Sheila Brummer.
Also we talk with Gia Emory of The Sioux City Conservatory of Music. The conservatory is hosting a writer’s contest next Saturday, October 15th, to highlight an issue of national and local importance.
Gia Emory shared her thoughts with Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer, and provided a preview of another event coming just a week later.
And today on the program we hear from the new leader of the non-profit Women Aware, Flora Lee.
