Colorado Edition: Heading Toward The Finish Line
Today on Colorado Edition: we learn about the uptick in health organizations requiring their employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and why these mandates are coming months after the onset of widespread vaccine availability. Then, we check in with Colorado local Flora Duffy, who recently won the first Olympic gold medal for her home country of Bermuda. Plus, with Colorado Day on the horizon, we meet the newest state historian and learn about her goals for the year ahead.
Today’s guests include Flora Duffy, gold medal Olympic triathlete; and Nicki Gonzales, associate professor of history and Colorado state historian. This episode also features reporting from KUNC investigative reporter Michael de Yoanna.
