Comedy Rocks or..."Rox", coffee is pretty great too plus there are a few art shows to check out and SPM hosts another candidate forum, this time it's for next week's Sioux City School Board election.

A Siouxland native is helping pork producers go high-tech. Chris Bomgaars created an app called “EveryPig”.  “EveryPig” says it helps farmers manage their livestock and improves the health of hogs.

The Exchange went live Friday morning at the Sioux City International Film Festival.  Films are being shown on Friday and Saturday at the Promenade Theater on 4th Street.   This year's them is Women in Film.  We talk with a group of women who will discuss women and film on Friday night at the Sioux City Convention Center.  Writer Sarah Nicole Jones, writer, and producer Melissa Blake, and historian and actress Rhiannon Koehler all discuss the history of women in film and how women navigate the world of film and television today.

Coming up on The Exchange, we have an update on the continuing concern over the Renewable Fuel Waivers that have reduced the amount of corn-based ethanol that is mixed into the nation’s gasoline.  It is hurting farmers and ethanol producers.  

We talk with North Dakota State Agriculture Economist David Ripplinger, who says exporting more ethanol to Brazil will be of some help, the problem of ethanol waivers remains. 

Also, we talk with an instructor from Morningside College about new Spanish textbook that mixes in culture with grammar.
