Colorado Edition: Widening The Field
Today on Colorado Edition: We get an update on the state’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout, as more doses are set to arrive and the number of ways to get an appointment is increasing. We also explore a looming showdown for states that rely on drinking and irrigation water from the Colorado River. And, we hear from two agricultural producers about the backlash to the governor’s declaration of March 20 as a meat-free holiday.
Today’s guests include: Aaron Rice, owner and operator of Jodar Farms in Wellington; Tyler Huggins, co-founder and CEO of Meati Foods. This episode features reporting from KUNC’s Matt Bloom; Ariana Brocious of Arizona Public Media, Lexi Peery of KUER, and KUNC’s Colorado River basin reporter Luke Runyon.
