State Of Working Colorado, Homeless Exhibit, Antibiotic Animal Feed, Colorado Prohibition Anniversary

Listen Now

By many measures, Colorado has recovered from the great recession but a smaller proportion of people here have jobs. We'll talk about that and other trends in the state's economy. Then, feeding antibiotics to livestock is controversial and 2017 brings new restrictions on everyone from the kid in 4-H raising a cow to the largest feedlots. An infectious disease expert at CSU discusses what these new restrictions could mean for animal and human health. Also, an art exhibit asks Denver's mayor: "What are you going to do about homelessness?" Plus, we'll learn about Colorado's strange prohibition history and we remember a former host of this program, Dan Meyers.
