”’Lawn & Order’ and Celebrating Our NextGen Producers” – TPR’s In Focus Weekend – May 06, 2023

On this episode of In Focus Weekend, we’re honoring outgoing Talk of Troy host, Marissa Lacey, who just finished an intensive week working with NPR’s NextGenRadio project. Lacey is joined by TPR’s student mentor Joey Hudson and the new TOT host Jaelanne Thomas, who also has achievements to celebrate.

We also bring you a case of “Lawn & Order!” In April 2022, the City of Northport, AL, cited veterinarian Dr. Ellen Newsom for having an organic garden on her lawn. Remarkably, she ended up in criminal court, facing a jury. Investigative journalist Lee Hedgepeth talks with In Focus host Carolyn Hutcheson about the case.
