Colorado Edition: Sassy And Classy
Today on Colorado Edition: We hear a story of an unexpected upside to the pandemic: an improved and tightened bond between parents and teachers at an elementary school in Denver. We’ll also check in on the world of college basketball, and speak to a CU Boulder men’s basketball coach ahead of the team's appearance in this week’s NCAA March Madness tournament. Plus, we hear the story of two Colorado women making history through their podcast, one of whom may be the first non-verbal podcaster in the world. And, we hear a conversation with the author of a new book about the history of drive-in theaters here in the state.
Today’s guests include: Mikelle Learned and Katherine Carol, hosts of the Shining Beautiful Series podcast; Melanie Asmar, a reporter with Chalkbeat Colorado; and Mike Rohn, associate head coach with CU Boulder’s men’s basketball team. Today’s show features reporting from KUNC arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
