Colorado Edition: Creating Connections
On today’s Colorado Edition: We hear about challenges one rural business faced during the pandemic, and learn about a new online network that seeks to connect these businesses with needed resources. We drop in on a drone soccer tournament to learn more about this growing e-sport. And, we speak with a pair of historians about a new book on the trans history of Trinidad, Colorado, a small former mining town which, for many years, was one of a handful of places with a clinic providing gender confirmation surgery.
Today’s guests include: Elizabeth Philbrick, co-founder of EsoTerra Cider in Dolores; Delaney Keating, executive director of Startup Colorado; Soleil Hanberry-Lizzi, historian and intern with History Colorado, and Going To Trinidad author Martin Smith. This episode also features reporting from KUNC's American Dream reporter Stephanie Daniel.
