Purplish is CPR News' weekly podcast about state politics, state government, Colorado policy, and political identity. This season the show is hosted by public affairs reporters Bente Birkeland, Caitlyn Kim and Andrew Kenney. Each week ahead of (and even a bit after) the 2020 election, they'll break down the latest developments in the races and on the ground, look ahead to what's next, and dive into the bigger picture of what it all means for our not-red, not-blue, still pretty purple state.
