In the first two months of this year, the Better Business Bureau reports people in Illinois and Missouri received nearly 236 million robocalls.

WSIU's Brad Palmer spoke with the BBB’s regional director Sydney Waters about how to reduce these calls; which ones are legal and how artificial intelligence is making robocalls more convincing.

As a news producer and news anchor on All Things Considered, Brad provides the listeners with a recap of the day's top local and state news as well as breaking news at any given time. Contact WSIU Radio at 618-453-6101 or email wsiunews@wsiu.org
