Presidential HIV/AIDS Advisor From Colorado Resigns; Governor’s Race; Denver Poet’s New Book; Western Slope Hikes

Listen Now

An infectious disease expert from Colorado has resigned in protest from the President's HIV/AIDS advisory panel. She's disturbed about the new health care bill being debated in Congress. Then, we speak with CPR's government reporter Allison Sherry about the crowded field of candidates who have joined next year's gubernatorial race in Colorado. She says the election will work unlike any other in state history because unaffiliated voters can cast ballots in the primary. And, slam poet and Denver native Theo Wilson has a new book in which he explains what makes him tick. Plus, an outdoor writer offers ideas on where to hike on the Western Slope and puts Black Canyon of the Gunnison at the top of his list.
