Audio: High Country Views, episode 4

HCN editors dissect the news


In this episode of High Country Views we discuss the politics of Nevada's hardrock mining industry, the state's sacred cow (and most privileged tax payer). We also pay a visit to Bodie, California, a ghost town and home to one well-studied pika population, with reporter Molly Samuel and pika researcher Lyle Nichols.


For our next podcast, we want to hear what's happening in your neck of the West! Call High Country Views anytime at (970) 497-1310 to leave us a short voicemail postcard. Tell us what's making news in your area or just how the landscape is changing this time of year. Whatever is happening where you are, we'd like to know about it. 

You can now catch High Country Views every other week. Available for download soon!

"Corporations can't be taxed in Nevada unless they agree to it"? Crazy! And what a lovely audio postcard from Molly Samuel in Bodie...

Thanks for these podcasts. It's wonderful to hear the vivid sounds & voices. I especially appreciated Molly Samuel on the trail of the squeaking pikas.
