Indiana men’s basketball took down Minnesota 73-60 Sunday at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. The win moved Indiana to 3-2 in Big Ten play and 12-3 overall, all while keeping its undefeated home record intact. After taking a 39-29 lead into the halftime break, Indiana allowed Minnesota to claw back into the game and take the lead midway through the second half. However, Indiana’s defense hounded its opponent down the stretch, forcing misses on nine of Minnesota’s last 10 shots. “I call it winning basketball,” head coach Mike Woodson said in the postgame press conference. “They came back from being down as much as 10 and took the lead. Our defense really picked up after that.” Five Hoosiers scored in double digits, led by senior guards Xavier Johnson and Rob Phinisee with 14 and 13 points, respectively. Junior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis also scored 13 points, with 9 coming in the second half after Johnson and Phinisee carried the scoring load in the first. Johnson and Phinisee combined for 22 points in the first half on 6-12 shooting from 3-point range. The duo’s first-half shooting performance was a result of the Golden Gophers’ defense focus on taking JacksonDavis and senior forward Race Thompson out of the game, which provided wide-open shot opportunities for Indiana’s guards. “I knocked down those shots in the first half, and I feel like they weren't sagging off as much in the second half, so I didn't really get as many looks,” Phinisee said. Jackson-Davis and Thompson combined for just 6 points in the first half, but they came alive in the second half to combine for 17 points and nine rebounds. Jackson-Davis followed up his 27-point, 12-rebound performance against No. 13 Ohio State with his sixth double-double of the season, this time with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Senior guard Parker Stewart scored 12 points in the win on 4-5 shooting overall and 2-3 shooting from 3-point range. Overall, Indiana shot 9-24 from beyond the arc with ball movement leading to open looks for its perimeter shooters. The Hoosiers totaled 17 assists on 27 made shots, compared to the Golden Gophers’ six assists on 23 makes. Johnson and Phinisee dished out nine assists combined. In addition to good ball movement, the Hoosiers only turned the ball over six times.


COLUMN: Indiana keeps winning games By Luke Christopher Norton lcnorton@iu.edu | @ByLCNorton

No. 6 Indiana women’s basketball hasn’t been perfect this year, a point made obvious by its 12-2 record. Luckily for the Hoosiers, those two losses came against two current top-10 teams, No. 2 Stanford University and No. 5 North Carolina State University. Those losses are respectable, since both opponents have sat atop the women’s college basketball rankings and each won a national championship in the past decade. The wins are more of a mixed bag, mostly in a good way — they are wins, after all. The Hoosiers have blown out or bested inferior competition and beaten what looked to be strong teams by double digits. But on other nights, they’ve let a few teams hang around which they probably shouldn’t have. Wednesday night’s 76-53 win against Wisconsin falls under the first category. Not exactly a full-on blowout, but a convincing win. Indiana’s wins against Butler University, Norfolk State University, Fairfield University and Southern Illinois University were all blowouts. These results were expected with the considerable gaps in talent, resources and proven resume between Indiana and its opponents. Even rival No. 21 University of Kentucky and Big Ten rivals such as Ohio State, Penn SEE COLUMN, PAGE 4


A "Stop Annexation" sign appears Aug. 23, 2021, on W. Vernal Pike. Bloomington's most recent annexation efforts have seen stiff opposition from residents since its announcement in 2017. By Sean Gilley spgilley@iu.edu | @spgilley729

All three Monroe County commissioners and the County Residents Against Annexation, an anti-annexation group in Monroe County, met at the Monroe County Courthouse on Jan. 6 to mark the end of the 90day remonstrance period and to offer preliminary remonstration petition estimates. Remonstrance is the legal process where property owners can formally object to a proposed annexation. These residents must sign a remonstrance petition within the 90day period allotted for their vote to count. Annexation is the process by which a city extends its boundaries to include nearby areas previously not inside city limits. The CRAA is a group led by President Margaret Clements. The group spreads awareness of annexation opposition opportunities and helps concerned property owners file remonstrance petitions. In order for a city’s annexation efforts to be automatically defeated, at least 65% of property owners within an area marked for annexation must file remonstrance petitions within the allotted remonstration period, City Attorney Mike Rouker said in a December 2021 interview. If between 51-65% of property owners in an annexation area file petitions, then the issue can be taken to court in a remonstrance trial, Rouker said. An attorney representing the residents could then liti-

gate their case against the city. “Both sides can go to court and there are certain standards that the municipality has to be able to prove to say these areas are appropriate for annexation.” Rouker said. Clements said most areas intended for annexation have more than enough remonstrance petitions to meet the 65% minimum and automatically halt the annexation of each respective area. Some areas had more than 80% of the petitions required, she said. “In eight out of nine of the originally proposed annexation areas we are confident that the annexation will be voided or has already been cancelled due to overwhelming public opposition,” Clements said. Clements and other members of the CRAA believe the ninth area proposed for annexation may have enough petitions to be contested in court. She said the CRAA recorded 1,196 petitions for the area, which is enough to meet the threshold necessary for contestation. Residents and County Commissioners both voiced their displeasure with the City’s efforts in the face of community opposition. County Commissioner Penny Githens voiced her support for annexation only when it’s done voluntarily. Indiana is one of a few states which still allow for involuntary annexation, which is an annexation process initiated by the municipality rather than the residents and often against the wishes of many of the property owners.

“As we have seen today, the current local annexation process has been arduous and upsetting,” Githens said. Githens announced her candidacy for Indiana House District 62 in Oct. 2021. She said Bloomington should return to the voluntary annexation process it had followed in the past and urged city officials to accept the results of the remonstration count. “Voluntary annexation reduces contentiousness, keeps the process out of the courts and allows those being annexed to weigh the cost of higher taxes against the services they would receive,” Githens said. County Auditor Catherine Smith is tasked with counting the votes of Monroe County residents who wish to oppose annexation. Smith, who lives in an area the city wants to annex, is publicly against the city's efforts. “I have the dual role of being a citizen who doesn't want my house annexed and the county auditor who has to count all these votes,” Smith said. She said residents should be patient while county officials certify the votes. “This is an example of government workers working their hearts out for the will of the people,” Smith said. “I have seen nothing but the strongest sense of community than I’ve ever seen in my life.” The county now enters a 35day span for the petitions to be verified. The official results will be announced soon after.

Officers from the Bloomington Police Department were informed Monday that a man living in a second-floor apartment at Kinser Flats had threatened to detonate explosives in the building. BPD officers met with the Kinser Flats property manager who informed them that 23-year-old Jayden Grubb had told another person he was in possession of military-grade explosives. Grubb had threatened to detonate due to his pending eviction, BPD Captain Ryan Pedigo said in an email. Officers saw on camera footage that someone inside the apartment threw a lit object, which officers believed to be some sort of explosive firework, into the hallway at 6 a.m. which then exploded. As officers attempted to make contact with Grubb, he refused to exit a back bedroom of the apartment. A 34-year-old woman emerged from the bedroom and said Grubb wouldn’t let her leave when officers first arrived. Pedigo said Grubb began to yell and threw a burning object at the officers. As the officers retreated, the apartment's carpet caught on fire. Officers evacuated the apartment and members of the Critical Incident Response Team, a multijurisdictional task force designed to handle serious emergency situations, were dispatched to assist. Members of the Crisis Negotiation Team, who are a part of the CIRT team according to BPD’s general order governing the activation of CIRT, and a police social worker attempted to communicate with Grubb but he barricaded the door. Members of the CIRT utilized less-lethal techniques in an attempt to force Grubb out of the bedroom, but he again refused to exit. Members of CIRT forced the door open and took Grubb into custody without further incident. Pedigo said no gas was used at Kinser Flats during the incident. According to the National Institute of Justice, there are seven types of less-lethal device technologies including conducted energy devices, directed energy devices, chemicals, distraction, vehiclestopping technology, barriers and blunt force. Technologies currently in use include conductedenergy devices such as Tasers, bean bag rounds, pepper spray and stun grenades, according to the NIJ. Members of the Indiana State Police and their Explosive Ordnance Disposal team assisted in searching the apartment. Grubb was transported to the Monroe County Jail where he was booked for attempted arson, two counts of intimidation, criminal confinement, resisting law enforcement and an outstanding arrest warrant for possession of methamphetamine.

Mixed responses about in-person classes


Junior Corbin Dubois looks at his computer during a class on Oct. 21, 2021, in Franklin Hall. Masks are required indoors for the spring 2022 semester. By Meghana Rachamadugu megracha@iu.edu

The 2022 spring semester will be held in-person as scheduled, IU announced in a Jan. 4 email to the student body. As hospitalizations surge again in Bloomington due to the omicron variant, students have mixed responses about returning to campus. “In my hometown, not a lot of people wear their masks,” Anjani Dent, a freshman at IU said. “I’d go anywhere, and I’d be one of the few wearing a mask. At IU, at least in all the buildings, all the students are wearing them.” When she first arrived on campus, the mask mandate alleviated some of the pressure of potential outbreaks,

Dent said. Now, she said the policy is the bare minimum a college could establish. Dent said more testing sites are needed so students can be better informed about their health. “There needs to be more COVID testing sites other than the field house because I had a friend who was sick and she was too weak to walk to the gym, so she just never got tested,” said Dent. Recent data from the Monroe County Health Department confirmed there is a positivity rate of over 10%. This means there are over 468 positive tests every 400,000 people. 70% of those hospitalized due to COVID-19 are unvaccinated. “The thought of going back

now actually really scares me,”Dent said. “I think we should be going online for just a few more weeks because of Omicron. I would feel better if they saw cases decline and then they went back.” She said in her hometown of Avon, Indiana, even with people being vaccinated and receiving the booster shot, she saw a lot of positive COVID-19 cases and people getting tested. “I’m just worried I’ll be next,” Dent said. Mason Hatsfield, a freshman and Telemetry Monitor Technician at Indiana University Health, said COVID-19 was a legitimate concern of his. He said being conscientious and following simple protocol can help alleviate the

spread of the virus. Hatsfield said even basic things like washing hands and protecting from germs can be really effective in staying healthy. He said he didn’t agree with virtual schooling to begin the semester given the lack of student engagement which can often happen as a result. He said he understood the health decisions were difficult, but the school is doing the best they can given the circumstances. Kat Grant, a third-year law student, is both immunocompromised and disabled. They are concerned returning to campus will cause problems for Bloomington and nearby communities in Southern Indiana.

They said they felt more confident returning to campus in Fall 2021 because of the early established mask mandate and higher vaccination rates. Since the first semester started, however, they said they don’t feel people are wearing masks at all times and returning to campus after winter break is far more dangerous. Currently, IU’s policy requires students to wear masks inside IU buildings at all times. They also announced an incentive program that would give $20 in Crimson Cash to students who have received a booster vaccination. Grant said they doubt the effectiveness of the booster shot incentive program and think people won’t take the

necessary precautions against the virus. “I have to operate at a very high level of caution, and a lot of people in the university don’t have to operate within this level,” Grant said. Grant said they believe following other school policies and going temporarily virtual would slow the burden on the communities in terms of resources and academics. “There’s a shortage of tests everywhere,” Grant said. “Bloomington has limited hospital beds and the potential burden we are creating not just on the university, not just on Bloomington, but on Southern Indiana - it seems irresponsible when we could be spreading that burden out across other communities.”

Monroe County Sheriff Brad Swain announced his candidacy for Indiana District 62 Wednesday, according to a press release from his campaign. Swain will campaign against Monroe County Commissioner Penny Githens for the Democratic nomination. Jackson County Councilmember Dave Hall is running unopposed for the Republican nomination for District 62. Republican Jeff Ellington, who currently represents District 62, is seeking election for District 45.

District 62 in Indiana was redistricted in 2021 and now includes all of Brown County and parts of Jackson and Monroe counties. Most of Bloomington falls outside District 62. Swain has served as the Monroe County Sheriff since 2015 and has served in the Sheriff ’s Office for more than 30 years, according to his campaign website. Much of his work as a detective in the Sheriff ’s Office focused on crimes against women and children, which included founding the Child Fatality Review Team and working with the Child Protection Team. As sheriff, Swain

served as the representative for the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association on the State Sexual Assault Response Team, according to the release. “With the credibility of the office, my career experience, and many leadership roles in community service, I will provide expert guidance and be heard when I communicate with other members of the House,” Swain said in the release. “I believe I am the most qualified Democrat to work with the Caucus, especially considering an ongoing ability to reach across the aisle.” Swain’s decision to run for office was influenced by

the two-term limit imposed on Monroe County Sheriffs, according to his website. Swain said he wanted to continue serving the public, and, if he were to be elected, he plans to use his experience as sheriff in office. “My past seven years as sheriff and long record of accomplishments during my career make me the candidate to impact actions within the House,” Swain said in the release. “I will work hard as always, and will take the concerns of my constituents to the Statehouse. I welcome the opportunity to continue faithfully to serve my fellow Hoosiers.”

Sidney Poitier leaves behind a trailblazing legacy By Braydyn Lents bglents@iu.edu | lentsbraydyn

Academy Award-winning actor, Sidney Poitier, died Jan. 6 at the age of 94. The Bahamian-American actor blazed a trail of perseverance during segregation. He inspired other African American actors to continue fighting for racial justice at a time when most white producers in Hollywood were not accepting prospective Black talent. Poitier grew up in the Bahamas and never thought of his race as intolerable until he moved to Miami, Florida, at age 14, according to a 2008 interview on “Larry King Live.” Living in the Bahamas allowed Poitier to embrace his creative ideas rather than allow his skin color to affect his identity. “I was not what I was required to be in Florida,” Poitier said. “I was not that. I couldn’t be that. I was taught that I had basic rights as a human being. I was taught that I was someone. I knew we had no money, still, I was taught that I was someone.” His mother and father raised him on the mindset of respecting other people no matter what their ethnicity shall inherit, according to a CNN article. For his Hollywood life,

Poitier starred in some of the most telling movies of the 1960s. He played in three of the biggest movies of 1967 including “To Sir With Love,” “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” and “In The Heat of the Night.” Other movies he starred in include “Sneakers,” “A Raisin in the Sun” and “A Warm December.” According to the Academy Awards website, Poitier was the first African American male to win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1959 and 1964. Poitier wanted to star in films where a Black character goes into white culture and unites himself with their triumphs and tragedies, as shown in the movie “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” in which he plays a Black husband to a white woman. His work in racial justice did not just end on the big screen. He participated in the civil rights movement in 1963, and a year later, he was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial participating in the March on Washington. “I found it necessary for self-protection and to perpetuate my survival that I involve myself in any activity that would ease my burden momentarily,” Poitier said. Incorporating his talent with social justice, his life was relatable to the struggles of racism shown in our country

today. One problem repeatedly addressed in a Poitier movie includes a moment of division between a white actor and a Black character who tries to make amends in their cultural separations. “I think he paved the way for Colin to kneel,” Maya Jones, an IU Junior Theatre MFA actor said. “I know he paved the way for Colin to kneel because without him taking care of his business and doing it with just a grace and asking how can I do this so it’s always respectful to everybody.” On and off of the screen, his advocacy for racial change for African Americans in America was an inspiration to people like Jones. “One thing that is super important to me, that he gave me, was a sense of always having pride and dignity in what I do despite the people around me who may not be thinking that I deserve space,” Jones said. Not only was Poitier a pioneer for Black male actors in America, but he helped open the doors to many Black and brown actors to become producers and directors. Today there have been changes made to help Black actors succeed on screen. The difference of inequality is still negatively affecting the Black film community, but Poitier’s impact will last forever.

Caleb Williams reignites conversation about NIL rules By Garrett Simms gasimms@iu.edu | garrett_simms22

Oklahoma Quarterback Caleb Williams stunned the college football world earlier last week after entering the transfer portal. His announcement reignites conversations about name, image and likeness laws and their effect on college sports overall. Williams went into this season a true freshman and the top-ranked QB for his class. He became the starter this season after unexpectedly replacing quarterback Spencer Rattler. Williams finished the season with 1,912 passing yards, 21 touchdowns, and a win in a bowl game against Oregon, according to The Washington Post. His decision to enter the transfer portal is an example of how the new era of college sports will look for star players. Since schools can use financial deals and incentives during recruiting, it will become a significant factor in how student athletes decide where to get their education. Schools have already started trying to catch Williams’ eye. Eastern Michigan University offered a $1 million deal for Willams to come


Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams celebrates after a touchdown pass against Texas Christian at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Oct. 16, 2021, in Norman, Oklahoma. Many college athletes have the opportunity to be paid based on their likeness, and Williams is looking to transfer schools in order to be paid more.

and play football at the university. Former EMU player and Super Bowl champion Char-

lie Batch publicly made the offer through a Twitter post days after Williams entered the portal. The proposal

shows how much wiggle room schools and boosters have in courting athletes under the new rules.

IU stepped into this new era as well. In early July, the athletics department created its own comprehensive

Indiana Athletics NIL policy to outline and encourage students’ opportunities. IU also offers an outside NIL program to help students learn more about their options and get the most from them. NIL rules added a unique aspect to school recruiting. Recruiting is no longer just about campus life, coach fit, and school history. Now, money is added in. This may change the relationships between schools and athletes forever. Athletes can now be worth as much money as their talents and marketability will allow, according to USA Today. Some believe this could also start an “employee and employer” relationship between schools and athletes, while others think these changes are long overdue. Athletes could be inclined to take big-money offers for one-year contracts similar to Williams’. After years and years of schools making billions of dollars off the talent of their athletes, it’s time for the athletes themselves to get in on the fun. No matter where Williams decides to go, his decision to enter the transfer portal shows the hype and potential of college sports in the new year.


Illinois’s hair discrimination bill is now in effect By Da’Nasia Pruitt pruittd@iu.edu | @danasialp

A new Illinois law banning hair discrimination is named after a 4-yearold Black boy named Gus “Jett” Hawkins. Officials at Hawkins’ school told him his braids violated the school’s dress code. The dress code stated afros or short hairstyles were allowed. However, other natural hairstyles worn by many Black children such as braids, locs and twists were banned. Hair discrimination is still embedded in the United States, and it continues to harm Black people, especially Black children. With the times we are in, as well as it being a new year, hair discrimination should no longer exist. The Illinois governor signed the bill to ban hair discrimination in schools in August 2021, according to Chicago Sun-Times. The bill, which is effective as of Jan. 1, prohibits schools from enforcing policies on hairstyles historically associated with race or ethnicity. This means schools in

Illinois should no longer be able to ban natural hairstyles worn by Black children. Every state should adopt laws to ban hair discrimination in schools. Black hair takes extensive and specific care. Black peoples’ hair is not all the same, it comes in different textures and lengths, and it can be styled in a multitude of ways. Hair for a lot of Black people tells a story or a journey. Things like the “big chop” or someone’s “loc journey” have both spiritual and physical significance. For some Black people, embracing their natural hair is an act of resistance against white supremacy. Many Black women have felt pressured over the years to use heat on their hair in order to assimilate and conform to European standards. Most of this pressure is from schools and workplaces which don’t view Black hairstyles like braids, locs and afros as professional or neat. “Black hair has a long history of being stigmatized and politicized,” Lori

Tharps, co-author of “Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America,” said in The Washington Post in 2019. There have been several instances where Black children were forced to cut their hair or penalized for their hairstyles. In 2018, Faith Fennidy, an 11-year-old Black girl was sent home from school because her braids had extensions. She was told her hair was unacceptable. The school had recently added a policy prohibiting extensions, weaves and clip-ins. Black hair requires a specific type of care and management. Fennidy’s family tried to explain to the school her braided hair extensions helped maintain her natural hair. However, this wasn’t enough to allow her back in school. Fennidy’s family looked to enroll her in another school. In 2019, Black teenager Andrew Johnson, was forced to cut his hair off during his wrestling match after officials said his hair covering for his locs didn’t conform to the rules.


There is no reason a child should be sent home because of their hair. It seems as if these rules about hair actively seek to punish Black children. These rules are harmful and make Black children internalize feelings of hate or disdain for their natural hair because they are punished for it. For Black children, hair

is a form of self-expression, which is critical in the development of a child. Taking that away can have self-damaging effects in the future. There are no federal laws to ban hair discrimination, and there is currently no law in Indiana to ban hair discrimination in schools. This means there could hy-

pothetically be some Black children in Indiana being punished for their hair. It is imperative for more states to adopt hair-ban discrimination laws. These laws will provide a more healthy and safe environment for Black children to wear their hair freely without the worry of it being “against the rules.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 State and now Wisconsin were bested by Indiana in decisive fashion, each by at least 20 points. Sure, Quinnipiac University, the University of Miami and, to some degree, Western Michigan University, gave Indiana a bit of a spook, but they all were put away in the closing stages. Indiana has avoided what has derailed many a titan in college basketball, both in the regular season and tourna-

ment play — the dreaded upset. Even its mere utterance leads a fanbase to cringe. Indiana was on the positive end of an upset this past Sunday against Maryland, the previous occupant of the Hoosiers’ highly coveted No. 6 spot in the AP poll. However, one could feel the tremors coming from Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin, once the Badgers took an early lead in the first quarter. But this is Indiana, no lead against it is ever truly safe. Not with its guards converting open shots aided largely by the

mere presence of junior forward Mackenzie Holmes patrolling the paint. Not with its defense forcing head scratching shots-turned-airballs whenever it can’t prevent them outright. Holmes, Indiana’s leading scorer heading into Wednesday’s game with 18.1 points per game, scares the living daylights out of any defense that has the misfortune of dealing with her looming presence. Wisconsin sure was scared, and its initial focus on the interior ended up being exactly what Indiana ordered to spark

a scoring run. While Holmes had just 4 points in the first half, Indiana’s guards were more than happy to replace her production on offense. Three other starters, senior Grace Berger and graduate students Ali Patberg and Nicole Cardaño-Hillary combined for 25 of Indiana’s 36 first-half points. Patberg and Cardaño-Hillary shot a combined 4-5 from behind the arc. During the second half, however, Indiana kept its foot on the gas on offense, but mistakenly allowed Wisconsin to do the same.

The Badgers decided that instead of simply fearing Holmes, they should embrace what she does — in their own offensive strategy. Of the Badgers’ 21 third quarter points, 14 came in the paint. The Badgers didn’t force shots over the Hoosiers’ defenders either, they instead finessed their way past them. The Hoosiers were able to match the Badgers output with 21 third quarter points of their own to keep the tremors of upset at bay. On top of that, the Badgers lost track of Holmes, who leapt into double figures

with a 12-point second-half performance. Wisconsin had a bit of momentum, but Indiana won’t fall apart because of that — it’ll take that momentum right back. This win wasn’t a prevented upset, it was Indiana’s usual double-digit domination. The Hoosiers are hot at a good time early in conference play, but they’ll need to maintain that energy if they want a shot at a Big Ten title. If this game is taken as a microcosm, the Hoosiers absolutely have that shot.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR The article entitled “Indignity in Death” written by Matt Cohen, dated Dec. 10, 2021, takes literary license to a new level. The first paragraph reads like the opening of a fiction novel that has no basis in fact except that I do visit the gravesite of my family members to decorate and tend to their graves. Years ago, I promised my mother that I would continue to do that in her stead. However, I am not trying to talk to my greatgrandfather H.V. Eagleson. Unfortunately, I never had

the pleasure or the privilege of knowing him because he passed decades before I was even born. When Matt asked me for an interview, it was under the guise of Monroe County deciding to place a monument on H.V. Eagleson’s grave. I agreed to do the interview because I wanted to express my appreciation to the Monroe County Cemetery Committee for moving forward with their plan — published in their 2016 calendar — and express how pleased and grateful I was

that the City of Bloomington was also renaming Jordon Avenue after my greatgrandfather. At no time did he say or imply that he was writing a piece on racism tied to “indignity in death” or I would not have done the interview because I do not have any knowledge or reason to think that is true regarding the Eagleson family graves or other Black families buried at Rose Hill. What I did say was that I was happy to see that the monument and street renaming was the initiative

of the county and city without prodding or protesting. I said I was proud of how , as far as I knew, these initiatives sprang from the acknowledgment of H.V. Eagleson himself and the accomplishments of his family. When Matt asked me why there was no headstone on my great-grandfather’s grave, I told him I had no idea why. I said it could have been an issue of affordability at the time or vandalism that occurs in many communities. There are other errors in

the article as they relate to the family but I particularly want to point out the following: H.V. Eagleson’s daughter was NOT the first IU female graduate (as stated under my photo). That honor goes to Francis Marshal Eagleson who was his grandson’s wife. I appreciate Matt shedding light on the history of my family and the Bloomington community as a whole, but it wasn’t necessary to misrepresent his motives when he asked for

the interview. The history of racism in Bloomington is a subject in itself that did not need to be masked under the guise of a piece on my great-grandfather’s grave. - Vivian Bridgwaters-Gray Clarification: In the letter Vivian mentioned how the first IU female graduate was incorrectly stated in the article. Upon further review the IDS deemed Vivian was correct and we have run a correction on the online version of the story.


One year after the Jan. 6 insurrection, democracy has not been rebuilt


Pro-Trump supporters storm the U.S. Capitol following a rally with President Donald Trump on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C. Curren Gauss (she/her) is a junior studying English with a minor in Playwriting. She hopes to someday have a job.

I remember Jan. 6, 2021, as one of those “time stop” moments. It’s how my parents described scary events to me as a child: ones that you can recall exactly where you were and what you were doing. My mom’s main example was the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster — she was watching it on TV in class. Until I woke up exactly one year ago, I hadn’t had a “time stop” moment. I hadn’t experienced the fear that allows you to remember everything. The insurrection at

the nation’s capital on Jan. 6, 2021, changed that. I was living alone at the time, my roommate was still visiting family for the holidays and I had come back to IU early. I didn’t have any friends in town. I remember sitting on my apartment floor crying as my neighbors texted each other frantically — I became worried about my own safety. Growing up in Indiana and being politically leftleaning, I haven’t always felt the most welcome. However, the Biden administration made me feel a little more at ease. Sure, things still wouldn’t be perfect, but maybe I wouldn’t be gasping

for air for the next four years. However, the events of 2021 have led me to one conclusion: American democracy is not on a path to rebuild. This isn’t a slam on Biden or a stab at the previous administration. It’s a realization that the United States is anything but united. From the insurrection to differing stances between political parties, our divided nation doesn’t get anything done for its citizens, regardless of party. The COVID-19 pandemic is a perfect example. In 2021, President Biden announced a nationwide vaccine mandate to ensure safer conditions for employees — only

for state governors and federal judges to block it. Instead of being a necessary tool to slow the spread of the virus and reduce the pandemic death toll, the vaccine itself has become a political pawn. In Texas, unconstitutional laws banning abortion are proposed, and then flagged down causing outrage and relief, depending on the citizen’s stance. Similarly, gun control laws vary from state to state with Indiana being one of the most lenient, allowing open carry of a handgun with proper permit. These “hot button” issues are uncomfortable to discuss. But they shouldn’t

be. Vaccines are necessary to stop a pandemic. Abortion laws shouldn’t attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade and something as dangerous as gun control should be a nationwide ruling — not left up to each state. This is how I feel. But it doesn’t change anything, because for Americans of either party to feel a sense of togetherness, we need to start with compromise. As the Omicron variant surges through the nation and cases continue to rise with no end in sight, it’s clear that Americans value self over sacrifice. In 2019, CNN reported that Americans only hypothetically want

compromise in politics, however, when it boils down to it we all only care about our own opinions. In relation to the insurrection one year ago, I’m no better. In Indiana, I am more than 600 miles away from the nation’s capital, and yet I was worried about my own safety instead of the officials being attacked. With the current division, I don’t see our nation as free from another attempted coup within the next four years. Without compromise, those “time stop” moments may become a lot more common. curgauss@iu.edu


Please get vaccinated against COVID-19 John Hultquist (he/him) is a junior studying community health with a double minor in urban planning and community development and nutrition.

If someone asked for a fun fact about me two years ago, it would be that I have a twin sister, Taylor, and our birthday is July 4. Today, my fun fact is that all three of my vaccines came from different states. Each time I needed the vaccine, I have been at different stages and places in life. IU’s Jan. 6 COVID-19 dashboard update indicates only 94.9% of IU Bloomington faculty, staff and students are partially or fully vaccinated. This leaves the other 5.1% who have either not reported or remain unvaccinated. Part of the 94.9% could also be partially vaccinated, meaning they received only one shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. The vaccine proved effective at mitigating the spread and severity of COVID-19. People must do a better job at getting vaccinated. IU must do a better job at reporting vaccination data.

The number of people discreet about vaccination status is unacceptable. Everyone at IU should receive the vaccine as a choice, leading to a healthier Bloomington community. My family will tell you I would never be the first in my family to receive the vaccine. As a child, I would scream when the nurse came in with needles. To this day, I hate the idea of a needle going into my arm. Yet, I chose to get vaccinated for others. Last February when I was a student at Fordham University Rose Hill, I qualified early for the vaccine in New York City due to close proximity with children as a high school sailing coach. I will admit traveling through the Bronx alone during a pandemic to receive a vaccination did not sound appealing. I rationalized my fears, acknowledged my privilege and took the subway to New York City Health + Hospital’s Lincoln Medical Center. The long line spanned many streets. I stood in line

for over three hours before I reached the paperwork and qualification checkpoint. Before I blinked another eye, “John H., we are ready for you,” the vaccine administrator said. I suffered mild side effects from the Pfizer vaccine. Within a month, I returned home and got my second dose at a local Walgreens in Illinois. By mid-March, I was fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine. After clearance for a booster shot, I received a Moderna booster with no reactions other than a day of the much dreaded sore and red “COVID arm.” It is not hypocritical of me to say that if you choose to not receive any COVID-19 vaccination, you are being selfish and disrespectful to your peers and colleagues. This pandemic has become nothing other than a battle with the unvaccinated as President Joe Biden addressed in September 2021. Getting COVID-19 will cause removal of myself from the community for five days. The reason I have to

isolate is because people fall severely ill when unvaccinated, according to a White House COVID-19 Teleconference on Jan. 5. In this conference, Dr. Anthony Fauci, among other top infectious disease experts, indicated vaccinated individuals suffer far less than those unvaccinated. He proved this through providing data from South Africa, the United Kingdom and Canada. People often specify they cannot receive the vaccine due to religious obligations. Many universities nationwide, IU included, introduced religious exemptions as an excuse to not receive the vaccine. IU has published three additional terms for exemptions: medical exemptions with documentation, medical deferrals (for those who are immunocompromised with specified conditions) and those in 100% online programs. The religious exemption is the most suspicious. No prominent U.S. religion opposes vaccines at its core be-

lief, according to CBS News. The reporting shows how major religions leave this decision up to the individual. If IU requires proof of booster vaccinations, before you consider filing for a reli-

gious exemption, or consider lying to campus officials regarding your vaccination status, think about the entire Bloomington community. jrhultqu@iu.edu

Guards shine, show growth in Indiana’s win By Kamil Gut kgut@iu.edu | @GutKamiI

In Thursday’s matchup with No. 13 Ohio State, it was largely through junior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis’ 27-point performance and dominance in the paint that set up Indiana men’s basketball for an upset victory. Minnesota, today’s roadblock on Indiana’s grind through Big Ten play, seemed to take notice of Jackson-Davis’ prior production when the two teams met for Sunday’s matchup at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Despite the strict gameplan Minnesota deployed — a team-wide effort to pack the paint and make life difficult for the All-American forward when Indiana had the ball — Indiana’s guards stepped up with timely baskets to guide the team past Minnesota 7360. Although Jackson-Davis couldn’t get much going offensively in the first half, going scoreless until almost halfway through the half, senior guards Rob Phinisee and Xavier Johnson provided relief for Indiana on offense. Minnesota’s complete concentration on the threat below the basket left opportunities begging higher up for Johnson and Phinisee, who combined for 22 of Indiana’s 39 first-half points. “Tonight I thought both of them played extremely well, considering all the hollering and screaming I was doing over there,” Indiana head coach Mike Woodson said. Phinisee scored 12 of his season-high 13 points in the first half on 4-8 shooting, with all of his attempts

coming from behind the arc. His four 3-pointers against Minnesota matched a career high, a feat he last accomplished in a road win against then-No. 4 Iowa last season on Jan. 21, 2021. Woodson has said in prior press conferences that he’d like Phinisee to be more confident shooting the ball and take more shots should the chances present themselves. Phinisee said he’s worked on being prepared to do just that each time he comes off the bench. On each of Phinisee’s attempts, Minnesota defenders remained several feet away from the 3-point line once the ball reached him. “When I came in, I just was shot ready,” Phinisee said. “I saw how they were guarding (Xavier Johnson), and usually that’s how teams guard us the same. I knocked down those shots in the first half, and I feel like they weren’t really sagging off as much in the second.” Phinisee also provided four assists, three rebounds and zero turnovers in 29 minutes as Indiana’s sixth man, including a team-high plus-minus rating of +22. “Rob has been through the grind of the Big Ten, and he knows the ins and outs of it,” Woodson said. “I don’t have too many players like Rob that’s been on this team that knows the team, and he can’t live in the past.” Johnson eased into Sunday’s game early by scoring the opening 5 points for Indiana with a basket in the paint and the first of his two 3-pointers on the day. He went on to finish with teamhighs in points with 14 and

assists with five despite only playing 22 minutes due to foul trouble. Inconsistent performances have resulted in boos from fans directed toward Johnson during a few games, but he said he’s kept working hard at improving his game and found support through his teammates and, most importantly to him, his coach. “When I first came in,

(Woodson) told me he had my back, and that was just the case scenario today,” Johnson said. “That’s the only person that I need to believe in me because he’s my coach, and he’s the only person that matters. It’s something that I’ve got to push through because I work on my craft every day, and my team believes in me.” Phinisee and Johnson


weren’t able to carry over their offensive production from the first half into the second, but the duo played a key role in holding Minnesota’s offense cold in the closing stages and keeping Indiana’s home record flawless. Minnesota shot just 10-27 from the floor in the second half and made one field goal in the final eight minutes. “A lot of us got beat to-

night off the bounce,” Woodson said. “When you start playing two small guards, I’ve got to utilize my two small guards who both can defend off the dribble.” Indiana’s guards will look to stay consistent as the team grows into the thick of the Big Ten schedule with a road matchup against Iowa at 9 p.m. Thursday in Iowa City, Iowa.


Indiana falls to No. 2 Penn State 29-11 Indiana beats Wisconsin, extends win streak By Griffin Healy

healygr@iu.edu | @TheGriffinHealy

Indiana wrestling lost its second conference match 29-11 to No. 2 Penn State on Sunday afternoon. Indiana opened the meet with No. 25-ranked sophomore Jacob Moran competing against Penn State senior Drew Hildebrandt. Moran lost in a 6-2 major decision in the 125-pound class, which handed Penn State an early 3-0 lead. No. 19-ranked graduate student Brock Hudkins helped Indiana bounce back against sophomore Baylor Shunk in the 133-pound class to make the score 5-3. Hudkins extended his undefeated personal record to 7-0. No. 26-ranked junior Cayden Rooks defeated junior Brandon Meredith in the 141-pound class in a 9-4 regular decision, extending Indiana’s lead to 8-3. Indiana junior Graham Rooks then lost to No. 20-ranked sophomore Beau Bartlett in a 6-4 decision for the 149-pound class, cutting Indiana’s lead to 8-6. Indiana sophomore Derek Gilcher defeated junior Tony Negron in the 157-pound class in a 9-7 regular decision.


Then-junior Brock Hudkins stands for a headshot in the wrestling practice room in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. IU will face Michigan State University on Jan. 17 at Wilkinson Hall.

In the 165-pound class, No. 24-ranked Penn State sophomore Creighton Edsall defeated Indiana senior Sammy Cokeley in a 11-3 major decision.

Indiana led 11-10 up to that point, but Indiana junior Sean Grim’s attempt at an upset fell short against No. 1-ranked sophomore Carter Starocci, putting Penn State

on top 16-11 just ahead of the most anticipated match of the night. The 184-pound weight class featured another top10 matchup between No. 8-ranked Indiana junior DJ Washington and No. 1-ranked Penn State sophomore Aaron Brooks. Brooks defeated Washington in a 13-4 major decision, extending Penn State’s lead 20-11. After starting the season with a personal 10-0 record, Washington has accumulated two consecutive losses. Indiana junior Nick Willham fell to No. 2-ranked junior Max Dean in a 6-0 major decision for the 197-pound weight class. Indiana finished the night with junior Jacob Bullock losing to No. 4-ranked Penn State freshman Greg Kerkvliet for the heavyweight class. The result secured the win for Penn State with a final score of 29-11. After a pair of losses on the road to open conference play, Indiana will have its first home meet of the season against Michigan State at 3 p.m. on Jan. 17. The match will be broadcasted on Big Ten Network.

No. 6 Indiana women’s basketball extended multiple streaks with its decisive 76-53 win over Wisconsin on Wednesday at Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin. With the win, Indiana is now on a sevengame win streak and 4-0 in Big Ten play, matching the program’s best-ever conference start. “This is a great win,” head coach Teri Moren said. “Any time you can win on the road in a very quiet atmosphere where we had to bring our own energy, that’s a good day for us.” Four of Indiana’s starters finished with double-digit points. Senior guard Grace Berger, the lone starter who didn’t have a double-digit scoring total, finished with 9 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists. Despite a flat first-quarter start against Wisconsin,

Indiana found its energy and rhythm to gain a comfortable lead over Wisconsin, which at one point grew to 27 points. “We had to certainly bring our own energy,” Moren said. “We got off to kind of a sluggish, slow start and then we kind of picked up the pace and then kind of got back into a lull.” The Hoosiers gave up 8 unanswered points in the first quarter, but stormed back quickly to go on a 13-2 run and finish the quarter ahead 17-12. They only allowed 9 Badger points in the second quarter on their way to a 36-21 halftime lead. Graduate student Ali Patberg was largely responsible for creating and maintaining Indiana’s lead, scoring 7 points in the first quarter and a game-high 18 total.

11 points in the fourth quarter, which finished with a 36% shooting mark. Moren said she set a goal for Indiana to give up no more than 60 points in a single game this season. So far, no team has scored more than 70 points against Indiana. “Our goal is to score 80 and to limit teams to 60,” Moren said. “We’re not hitting our offensive benchmark yet, but we are certainly doing that on the defensive end.” Patberg credited much of Indiana’s defensive success to the strategies put in place by the coaching staff, and said the team watches a lot of film and knows what to expect entering every game. “It’s our job to go out and execute,” Patberg said. “It’s our focus, our attention to details on the defensive end. I know that’s why it makes us so good on defense.” Indiana will look to move to 5-0 in conference play and set a new program record when it travels back to Bloomington to face Nebraska at 6 p.m. on Jan. 13. The game will air on the Big Ten Network.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 perfect 5-5 from the field until the fourth quarter. “We just came in focused on getting this win,” Patberg said. “We just gave it all we had and we got it, we got a win.” Indiana led by double digits from halftime onward, but ran into some trouble in the third quarter when its defense faltered and gave up 21 points in the period to Wisconsin. “Our focus waned a little,” Patberg said. “We kind of allowed our focus to go down defensively, but we picked it back up at the end of the third and going into the fourth. It’s always on the defensive end that we make our runs.” Junior forward Mackenzie Holmes kept Indiana’s momentum going with 10 points in the third quarter alone. Holmes, who was named to the Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 on Wednesday, finished the game with 16 points and eight rebounds. Indiana’s defense found its rhythm again in the closing stages of the game, only allowing Wisconsin to score

Indiana upsets No. 13 Ohio State 67-51 By Kamil Gut kgut@iu.edu | @GutKamiI

Indiana men’s basketball returned to Assembly Hall on Jan. 6 after a loss on the road to Penn State. The team responded to the challenge posed by No. 13 Ohio State with a 67-51 victory. The upset moved Indiana to 11-3 this season and extended its unbeaten start in Bloomington under head coach Mike Woodson to 10 games. “We knew that coming off that Penn State game that we needed one bad,” Jackson-Davis said. “We had a real sit down as a team and figured some things out. The Big Ten is a battle. We’ve struggled on the road, but Coach Woodson made it an emphasis to win on our home floor.” Indiana entered the matchup ranked first in the Big Ten and third in the nation in defensive field goal percentage, while Ohio State was third in the Big Ten with a 39.7% mark from long range. Against Penn State, Indiana gave up 11 3-pointers on 50% shooting from deep, but Jackson-Davis said in a postgame interview Indiana wanted to keep Ohio State from finding similar success. Ohio State shot just 31% from the floor and converted 8-27 attempts from deep. The battle of star forwards between JacksonDavis and Ohio State junior forward E.J. Liddell, who each entered the game averaging over 19 points and seven rebounds on the season, was won by the former on both ends of the floor.

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is an 8 — Prioritize domestic harmony. Make repairs and manage breakdowns. Keep systems in working order. Home comforts nurture your family. Savor delicious treats together. Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is an 8 — Focus on practical priorities with a creative project. Capture your ideas. Build and strengthen foundational elements. A deadline stimulates disciplined efforts. Write and express.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is an 8 — There’s money to be made, if you can brush aside distractions or illusions. Keep your patience around delays or breakdowns. Stay in communication. Maintain momentum. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Today is a 9 — Confront a challenge with confidence and optimism. Communicate with your team. Notice beauty, kindness and integrity. Share what you’re grateful for. Courageously advance.

Jackson-Davis’s stifling defense led to five blocks on the night to frustrate Liddell in the paint, holding him to 11 points on 2-7 shooting inside the arc. Jackson-Davis was aggressive on the offensive end from the opening tip, drawing a shooting foul in the first five seconds and routinely punishing Ohio State for its lack of double coverage against him down low. The All-American led all scorers with 27 points on 11-17 shooting, including five dunks to give Indiana a commanding 38-10 advantage in points in the paint. “We were pushing the pace,” Jackson-Davis said. “I sprinted forward really hard and got easy looks from that. That wear and tear on their bigs. They kept throwing guys at me, but I thought I

was just outhustling them.” After the loss to Penn State, Woodson criticized Jackson-Davis for only grabbing five rebounds despite his 20-point performance. He responded by matching that total by halftime and posting his 27th career double-double with 12 total rebounds. Sophomore guard Trey Galloway made his return to action for Indiana after missing the team’s previous 10 games due to a left wrist injury. Galloway helped spark Indiana’s 26-15 run to end the first half up 33-30 with several hustle plays, improving Indiana’s off-ball movement on offense. Galloway finished with the third-most points of any Indiana player with 8. He also had two steals, three assists and four rebounds in 19

minutes. “The time off and trying to stay ready, that’s really what helped me out,” Galloway said. “Our strength coach really pushed me to stay in shape and keep my body conditioned.” Graduate student center Joey Brunk returned to Assembly Hall for the first time since transferring from Indiana to Ohio State last summer. Brunk, who spent two seasons with Indiana but sat out with a back injury for the entirety of the second, posted 6 points and two rebounds in six minutes against his former team. Despite a 17% secondhalf shooting slump, the Hoosiers led the Buckeyes by 4 points with under seven minutes remaining. Indiana’s efficiency from the free-throw line, a 1518 mark, provided enough points to keep Ohio State from retaking the lead. Senior forward Race Thompson helped the Hoosiers make their hopes of an upset a reality with 7 of his 11 total points coming in Indiana’s 15-3 run to close out the game. “This is probably the best game we played all season in terms of how we defended and how the ball moved offensively,” Woodson said. “The crowd is who they are, Hoosier Nation has always been great.” Indiana, now 2-2 in conference play, will have another matchup against Minnesota at noon Sunday at home. Minnesota is 10-2 overall and 1-2 in Big Ten play.

Animation studio casts Hollywood actors in film By Haripriya Jalluri hjalluri@iu.edu

Bloomington animation studio DeCarlo Animation is scheduled to finish production of “The Encounter,” a sci-fi feature film in 2023. The film is expected to be distributed to theaters worldwide in late 2023 or early 2024, with the possibility that the film will be sold to a streaming service. After leaving his job in IU’s Office of Overseas Study, Thomas DeCarlo launched DeCarlo Animation in 2018 with his short film “The Encounter.” The short won six awards at film festivals across the U.S. and inspired DeCarlo to transform it into a feature film with the same name. “The Encounter” feature film is centered around a new agent in a secret government agency, who must stop an intergalactic war from breaking out after encountering an alien. “The short film takes place

entirely out in the cornfield at night, it only has one speaking character and only two characters present on camera,” DeCarlo said. “For the feature, I took that premise and just kept on expanding on it, and how to bring in other characters and the world of this secret agency.” “The Encounter” feature film has a cast of Hollywood actors. Actor Geoffrey Arend will star in the lead role, alongside Laura Gómez, Bebe Neuwirth, Edi Gathegi, Maulik Pancholy, Andrew Kennedy, Ashley Fink and Nick Wolfhard, according to DeCarlo Animation’s website. As a fan of the genre growing up, DeCarlo said he was inspired by sci-fi and the issues that writers can discuss under the guise of aliens. “The Encounter” manages to use its genre to discuss “otherness” and alienation without explicitly stating racism, making it a family friendly movie, DeCarlo said.

“In the case of this film, one of the core themes is otherness and all the different main characters have been otherized in one way or another,” DeCarlo said. “But it’s couched in this discussion of aliens and extraterrestrials.” Along with the theme of otherness, DeCarlo said he aims for the feature film to exemplify the resistance from millennial employees with their older generation bosses. “That became a core theme to the film as well, this idea that you’ve got a character who is self-confident, who knows he’s right, who’s stuck in a world that won’t listen to him and him having to fight to make what’s right happen,” DeCarlo said. DeCarlo originally started out in live action filmmaking, but turned to animation because of the available possibilities with a lower budget. “The Encounter,” which will have a Pixar animation style, has a budget of less than $1

million, according to the press release. “Doing good sci-fi on a smaller budget is extremely difficult in live action,” DeCarlo said. “Whereas if you’re doing animation, that sci-fi fantasy realm really takes advantage of what you can do in it, it’s very easy to have an alien character going around.” DeCarlo is the primary

writer, director, producer and animator for the film. His coproducers are IU Luddy alum Brad Wisler and Anna Strout, who is also the casting director. “The Encounter” character designer is Emma Land, a Ball State University graduate, and the original score is being created by IU Jacobs School of Music Professor of Film Scoring Larry Groupé. DeCarlo is

also collaborating with the IU Media School to create spring internships for animation students. “IU is an incredible source of talent in the region and I am thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with its students, faculty, and alumni,” DeCarlo said. “Hopefully, I can provide unique, professional opportunities in return.”

“An Officer and a Gentleman” will make its Bloomington debut at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 18 at the IU Auditorium . The musical, based on the 1982 Oscar-winning film of the same name, follows Zack Mayo, who enters the U.S. Navy‘s Officer Training School. The aspiring U.S. Navy Officer is soon faced with the commands of Drill Sergeant Emil Foley, causing Zack to question his career and future. Zack meets a local factory girl, but it isn’t until tragedy be-

falls a fellow candidate that he finds the courage to be himself and win the heart of the woman he loves. The show first premiered in 2012 in Sydney, Australia. It was nominated for five Helpmann Awards, including “Best Musical 2012.” Three-time Tony Award nominee Dick Scalan directs this brand new adaptation of the original screenplay, with choreography by Patricia Wilcox and musical arrangements by Dan Lipton. The musical features the No. 1 hit and Grammy

Award-winning single “Up Where We Belong” by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. The score is based on some of the most recognizable songs from the 1980s, including “Higher Love” by Steve Winwood, “Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar, “Venus” by Bananarama, “Do The Walls Come Down” by Carly Simon and “Hold On to Your Dream” by Rick Springfield, according to Ordway.

New podcast and show featuring Midwestern artists debuts on WFIU By Caroline Geib cegeib@iu.edu | carolineegeib


IU adjunct instructor Alex Chambersis the host and producer of WFIU’s “Inner States.” Episodes of the podcast will be released every Sunday during January.

WFIU debuted a new arts and culture podcast and show, “Inner States,” on Jan. 9. “Inner States” is an hourlong show airing every Sunday at noon on Indiana University’s radio station, WFIU. It is available for audiences in a podcast format after its initial airing on the WFIU website. “Inner States” encourages Midwestern artists to share their inspirations and stories with listeners. It also draws attention to where these artists are going with their work, as well as in life.

Adjunct Instructor Alex Chambers doubles as the sole host and producer of this show. He said he wants his guests to share not only their ideas, but also their cultures and backgrounds that led them to where they are. Chambers said he wanted to focus on creating something that would feel relevant to the show’s listeners, who are mainly Midwesterners. “There’s just a lot of art and culture and life going on in southern Indiana, in the region and in the states that surround us that doesn’t get as much coverage as it should,” Chambers said. Chambers calls attention

to a different artist on each episode of his show. Chambers said he tries to find artists that would not typically be featured and shine a light on the work they do. The first episode of the show featured a conversation with Diane Kondrat, an actor who spends a majority of her time in Midwestern cities. In future episodes, Chambers plans to speak with creators such as Alicia Kozma, director of IU Cinema, and journalist Monroe Anderson. Chambers said he is also trying to redefine the term “art” with his show. “I like finding people who are doing things that may or

may not be considered art,” Chambers said. Chambers said he hopes to one day feature a hairdresser and a power line worker on his podcast. He believes that some people may be so passionate about their work that they may consider it art, even when society typically may not. Chambers said the best moments are often when he is talking to a guest and can hear the emotion in their voice. “The thing I love most about good radio,” Chambers said, “is when you hear someone being human somehow.”
