Ways To Subscribe

It can be lonely over the holidays for international students stuck in the U.S. because of money, travel times, or pandemic restrictions. Hear how they're coping and the help they get. Plus, a new Philly Steak place has opened and a fried chicken option is coming to the Bloomington Normal Restaurant Scene. Supply chain disruptions have already slowed down Rivian's start of production. Could it get worse? E-V journalist Steve Levine talks about why America needs to build out its battery-metals processing capability. And the Musical 'Rent' defined a generation that came up in the 1990s. Now, that classic retelling of La Boheme is on a farewell tour stopping in Bloomington.

WGLT Senior Reporter Charlie Schlenker has spent more than three award-winning decades in radio. He lives in Normal with his family.
