Mike King butted heads with the EPA over the Gold King Mine spill, and navigated contentious fracking issues, as head of Colorado's Department of Natural Resources. He joins us as he prepares to step down and take a new job at Denver Water. Then, older white men are committing suicide at staggering rates in Colorado. We ask why. We also take a look back at the Golden age of Colorado Radio. And, we hear how a galactic merger could uncover a new kind of black hole.
