Also: IPR reporter Clay Masters shares the latest on the Iowa gubernatorial race, Barbara Rodriguez on her recent reporting showing that Iowa's new family planning program is providing fewer services like contraception, and a conversation with Marshalltown native, actor Toby Huss, who is in the new Halloween movie with Jamie Lee Curtis.
