Sitting in for Max Armstrong, Steve Alexander goes back to 1837, with a look at some interesting features, including the News Sentinel in Fort Wayne that started printing. The afternoon paper is ending print operations, moving mainly online. Alexander also explains where Max is this week - amidst both vintage and modern ag tech over 7 days. He also shares that many from the Midwest were lost in that ship collision in the Pacific. And a fight over animal rights regarding a pigeon hunt held by an Oklahoma lawmaker is over. And Hollywood is going to Nebraska for a new Cohen movie.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily audio feature produced by Max Armstrong, offering news and commentary from across the Midwest.
