Colorado Edition: Fixing The Problem
Today on Colorado Edition: We learn how ozone pollution and wildfire smoke are impacting air quality throughout the state. We also hear about a recent report that examines how Colorado has changed since legalizing recreational marijuana. And we revisit a conversation with Dr. Melba Patillo Beals, a former journalist, author and one of the Little Rock Nine.
Today’s guests include: Jack Reed, interim director of Colorado’s Office of Research and Statistics; and educator, author and journalist Dr. Melba Patillo Beals. Today's show features reporting from KUNC's AAAS Mass Media Fellow, Ashley Piccone.
