Pro-life advocates deliver thousands of signed petitions to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, initiating a ballot measure process that could ban abortions after 22 weeks of pregnancy. March 4, 2020. (Kevin J. Beaty/Denverite)

This episode is longer than usual but don't blame us. Blame the ballot, and the eleven complicated, interesting, important things that Colorado voters have to decide on this fall. Hosts Bente Birkeland and Andrew Kenney (along with giant initiative nerd, editor Megan Verlee) get together to talk about some of those measures (we couldn't even to all of them in a half hour) and the larger implications of the citizen's initiative in general.
