Why Hate Crimes Go Unreported; Singer Dan Fogelberg Joins Colorado Music Hall of Fame; Poetry About Dodging the Draft

Listen Now

The U.S. Department of Justice reports more than half of hate-crime victims don't call law enforcement. In Denver, the Matthew Shephard Foundation wants to understand why. Also, critics say Denver’s new data-driven policing strategy isn’t properly used. Then, '70s singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg's music was inspired by his time in Colorado. He's about to be inducted into the state's Music Hall of Fame. And, Denver poet Robert Cooperman dodged the Vietnam draft, and he's not sorry. His new collection of poems reveals how and why he, and many others, avoided going to war. Plus, a mistake can shape the rest of your life, as it did for a Boulder climber whose misstep came high in the mountains of Myanmar.
