Today on Colorado Edition: we'll discuss what we learned from a report about the effects of living near oil and gas drilling sites. Plus, how new program helps student teachers. And, a conversation with fashion designer Orlando Dugi.
What Does The New Oil And Gas Study Really Tell Us?
In mid-October, the state of Colorado released a report that studied the health impacts of living near drilling operations. And there is a lot to digest from it.
For even more on this research, read this reporting from Rae and Matt.
New Program Helps Aspiring Teachers
Studying to become a teacher comes with several requirements. One is a semester of full-time teaching. But these college students don't get paid to teach... and this financial burden keeps some from achieving their dream. As KUNC's Stephanie Daniel reports, a new program is removing this barrier.
Fashion Designer Orlando Dugi's New Exhibit
While fashion designer Orlando Dugi's formal wear designs can be seen on the runways, he got his start watching his Navajo grandmother. Dugi's work is showcased in a new solo exhibit at Colorado State University's Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising.
KUNC's arts reporter Stacy Nick spoke to Dugi to learn more about what inspires his work.
Orlando Dugi will present a series of gallery talks on Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Avenir Museum.
