On today's show, we're joined by an organization who is committed to promoting the healthy development of Indiana children and youth - that's the Indiana Youth Institute. Plus the fine folks of Hamilton County Tourism who want you to head north!
Located just north of Indianapolis, Hamilton County is the home of Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, and Westfield and has become one of Indiana's fastest-growing counties.
