Colorado Edition: Prepare For The Worst, Hope For The Best
On today’s episode of Colorado Edition, we learn how a changing climate and other natural hazards can make buildings susceptible to damage. Then, we discover how small towns on the Front Range are trying to conserve water supply to support their booming communities. We hear why a state law is unintentionally making it harder for Coloradans to find remote work. And, we learn how arguments over critical race theory made their way to a Colorado school board meeting.
Today’s guests include research scientist with CU Boulder’s Earth Lab, Virginia Iglesias; reporter for KVNF in Paonia, Jodi Peterson; tech and business reporter with the Colorado Sun, Tamara Chuang; and education reporter with the Aurora Sentinel, Carina Julig.
