What It’s Like To Be Muslim In Colorado, An Irish Music Obsession Gets Serious, How Fraud May Delay Tax Returns

Listen Now

The terrorist attacks last year in Paris and the mass shootings in San Bernadino, Calif. led to an immediate rise in anti-Muslin threats and hate crimes. Muslims have also been singled out in the presidential campaign -- with Republican candidate Donald Trump's call to ban Muslims from entering the US. We asked Colorado Muslims to tell us what they want others to know about them. Three of them joined us in the studio: One attended school in Saudi Arabia, another is a Pakistani-American who grew up in Wyoming, and a third is a former president of The Colorado Muslim Society. Then, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, we hear from a Denver Musician and how his obsession with Irish folk music has become more than a hobby. And, we learn how tax return fraud might keep you from getting your refund checks in a timely matter.
