Colorado Edition: Who Is Prioritized?
Today on Colorado Edition: Teachers are expected to be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine some time in the spring, but some are calling for educators to be moved to a higher priority. We'll learn more about that, and hear why the start of the new year may be tough for many jobless Coloradans who have relied on federal unemployment benefits during the pandemic. We'll also explore a Great Basin cave to learn what it tells us about global warming. And we get some tips from a seasoned runner on how to jog outdoors during the winter months.
Today’s guests include: Erica Meltzer, Bureau Chief at Chalkbeat Colorado; Tamara Chuang, business and tech reporter for the Colorado Sun; Judy Fahys of InsideClimate News; and Zack Sanchez of the Fort Collins Running Club.
