Ella Abbott/WBOI News

This week on WBOI Presents, we bring you the latest on the clash between residents and Allen County government over the proposed site of a new jail in Southeast Fort Wayne.

We’ll also update you on the status of cat adoptions and intake, following the spread of a virus at Animal Care and Control in Fort Wayne.

Later, WBOI Content Director Zach Bernard talks with Alix Watson and Art Herbig of the Cinema Center, leading up to a panel discussion with pop culture representation expert Dr. Stephanie L. Young that took place after a showing of Everything Everywhere All At Once on Friday, July 1.

And we close out the episode with the latest news from around the Hoosier State courtesy of our colleagues at Indiana Public Broadcasting.
