Loud & Clear: Brushing Up on the ConstitutionIn our weekly feedback segment, we revisit our conversation about the 11 counties that want to break away from Colorado and form a new state.

Our guest was a leader in the movement, Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway. He said secession isn’t the only option on the table: There’s another avenue that might give rural Colorado a louder voice in politics. and that’s to change up the state senate, and make it look more like the U.S. senate, where every state -- no matter its population -- gets two seats.

The Supreme Court has put a stop to previous efforts to do that, as we heard from a few listeners.

Then, we follow up on our conversation about a new wine book.

Master Sommelier Richard Betts is the author of "The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert."

Betts is the former wine director at the Little Nell Hotel and Restaurant in Aspen. He told us that mead, a type of honey wine, can be really boring. Not so, says one of our listeners.
