Colorado Edition: How Far It Goes
Today on Colorado Edition: We explore the political spending of some of Colorado’s professional sports leaders and the connection between sports and politics. Plus, we hear how climate change is impacting the high mountain habitat of the American pika. We also speak with a woman living in Walden, Colorado where residents are banding together to pick up medications, and with a reporter covering the decline of rural pharmacies. And we hear about the return of a silent film series at Boulder’s Chautauqua Auditorium.
Today’s guests include: Sandra Fish, a data journalist reporting with the Colorado Sun; Markian Hawryluk, Colorado correspondent for Kaiser Health News; and Whitney Malek, a Walden resident and mother. Today’s show features reporting from: AAAS Mass Media Fellow Ashley Piccone. We also hear from KUNC film critic Howie Movshovitz.
