Colorado Edition: Lending A Hand
Today on Colorado Edition: we learn about how human trafficking was impacted by the pandemic and what to expect when COVID-19 restrictions loosen up. Then, we explore how some Coloradans have been impacted by student loan debt, and how President Biden’s latest push for debt relief could help. Next, we step back and relax with some notes of nature, and learn how natural sounds can positively impact our health. And, we celebrate the life and legacy of Colorado photographer Soren McCarty.
Today’s guests include: executive director of Voluntad/Street’s Hope, Caroline McKinnon; Chalkbeat Colorado reporter Jason Gonzales; conservation biologist Rachel Buxton; and biology professor George Wittemyer. Today's episode features reporting from KUNC arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
