Colorado Edition: A Perfect Storm
Today on Colorado Edition: We hear how monsoon patterns and thunderstorms contribute to flash floods, like the ones last week in Glenwood and Poudre Canyon. We also get an update on unidentified aerial phenomena spotted in Eastern Colorado last year. Plus, we learn the results of a study on a Denver program that gave people experiencing homelessness a permanent place to live and access to extensive social services. And, we explore how Colorado mountain towns are weathering a “perfect storm” of a housing crisis, worker shortages and waves of tourists.
Today’s guests include: Colorado Sun reporter Jason Blevins; and Urban Institute researcher Sarah Gillespie. Today’s show features reporting from KUNC investigative reporter Michael de Yoanna and KUNC's AAAS Mass Media fellow Ashley Piccone.
