Listen Now

Before this morning's attacks in Brussels, the big international news was President Obama's visit to Cuba. We speak with Colorado U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, who's traveling with the president, and with some Cuban-Americans who want to make life better on the island. Then, Colorado's a leader when it comes to electing women to political office -- women make up a bigger proportion of our legislature than any other state. But a new documentary shows that it's not always easy for them when they get there. Pat Schroeder, the first woman elected to Congress from Colorado, remembers the committee chairman who considered her a half-person.
