A new report highlights how Colorado's creative industries impact the state's economy.

This week on KUNC's Colorado Edition:

In 2014, Colorado doctors noticed a strange cluster of medical cases -- children whose arms and legs suddenly went weak -- or even became paralyzed. Now, those doctors and researchers are getting closer to finding out what caused the problem so they can be ready next time.

We’ll also hear a bit about what drives Colorado’s economy and get an update about what's going on at the state Capitol in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

Then we get involved with a local nonprofit: Greeley's Senior Resource Center.

And is it true that are zombie films are STILL a thing? Our film critic, Howie Movshovitz, digs into "The Cured."
