Oil And Gas Industry Faces Tougher Regulations; Studying Music And White Supremacy; A Comic Artist’s ‘Intro To Alcohol’

Listen Now

Conflicts over oil and gas development are more intense since two people died in a home explosion last spring. The state's top regulator feels the heat from communities that want to restrict drilling. Then, a University of Colorado Boulder professor studies how white supremacists have moved from the fringes of society, and the role music has played. Plus, an autobiographical comic book about a Denver artist's relationship with his father and alcohol. And, the first woman to officially complete a US marathon ran up Pikes Peak in 1959. Not many people knew what she'd accomplished until years later.
