Listen Now

A part-time professor at the Community College of Aurora complained that a recent change in the school's curriculum made some classes too easy. He says he was fired because of it, but the school says he was dismissed because he didn't implement the curriculum effectively. Then, a 16-year-old from Boulder sued the government for not doing more to stop climate change. Also, Denver is vying to host the Gay Games, a major sporting and cultural event for the LGBT community. And, Denver's Phamaly Theater Company features actors with disabilities. Its new artistic director is believed to be the only person in a wheelchair leading a major U.S. theater group.
