Paleontologist Ken Carpenter excavating Pops on the day he discovered the fossil.

Today on Colorado Edition: We hear the story of how a team of paleontologists from Denver came to find pieces of one of Colorado’s most famous dinosaurs hidden away in some cardboard boxes. And with the long weekend ahead, and folks set to gather in person, we offer a pair of protein perspectives to help you decide what to put on the table, or on the grill. We also visit Tiny Town, a beloved tourist attraction near Morrison, that’s reopening to the public this weekend.

Today’s guests include: Aaron Rice, owner and operator of Jodar Farms; and Tyler Huggins, co-founder and CEO of Meati Foods. And today’s show features reporting from: KUNC’s Rae Solomon; and KUNC arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
