Today on Colorado Edition: We’ll learn more about a lawsuit from the ACLU of Colorado alleging the state isn’t doing enough to protect vulnerable people in the prison system from the coronavirus. We’ll hear about the complex challenges facing unemployed Coloradans who are searching for benefits. Plus, we'll look at the debate surrounding standardized testing in an exceptionally difficult school year. And, we’ll explore the history of outdoor holiday lights, rumored to have started right here in Colorado.

Today’s guests include: Moe Clark, reporter with Colorado Newsline; Tamara Chuang, who reports on business and tech for the Colorado Sun; Erica Meltzer, bureau chief at Chalkbeat Colorado; and KUNC’s arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
