Speaking of Nebraska is a weekly conversation about the issues facing our state. NET News talks with local and state leaders and experts about the challenges and opportunities we face and how we can solve them. Whether it's surviving a difficult farm economy or a devastating flood. From talking openly about teen suicide to examining the work of our state court system. Speaking of Nebraska addresses the issues and concerns of those who live and work across our state. 

NET News Director Dennis Kellogg (Twitter) produces and hosts our program. NET News Legislative reporter Fred Knapp (Twitter) delivers the latest developments in the Nebraska Legislature. Speaking of Nebraska also includes weekly updates on the ongoing recovery and rebuilding efforts following severe flooding in the eastern half of the state this spring.
