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 and Andrew Kenney. Each week of the legislative session, they'll break down the latest developments at the capitol, offer an engaging guide to the most significant policies up for debate, and dive deep into the bigger picture of what it all means for our not-red, not-blue, still pretty purple state.
Everything you need to know about the end of session, from 11th hour bill failures to last minute filibusters to post-session caucus infighting, all brought to you by two hosts who really, really need to get some sleep.
Issues of race and systemic racism have boiled over repeatedly during this legislative session, in policy discussions and public comments, exposing deep divisions in lawmakers' views, and their lived experiences.
Let CPR Classical take you to some of the most breathtaking mountains, valleys and towns in Colorado this summer from the comfort of your own home with Summerfest 2021. There’s no better way to tour the state than through the gorgeous sounds of world-class music at Colorado’s wide array of outdoor and state-of-the-art venues.
