217 Today: Professors of history, religion and politics weigh in on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Today’s headlines:

  • Champaign Unit 4 teachers have a tentative contract agreement with the district.
  • Incarcerated people in Illinois who are up for a possible early release will have to wait another month to get their cases heard because the board that deals with those requests no longer has enough members to meet.
  • There’s a bi-partisan push in Springfield to confront increasingly brazen retail shoplifting rings.

In today’s deep dive, we’ll hear from a panel of professors at Western Illinois University on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

217 Today is produced by Farrah Anderson. Reporting today contributed by Emily Hays, Caroline Kubzansky, Dave McKinney and Rich Egger.
