HCN's Soundtable

The HCNU classroom program presents Soundtable, a live radio discussion, on April 6, 2016, at 6 p.m. Mountain time. We'll be broadcasting and live-streaming from our local radio station, KVNF, in Paonia, Colorado.

In this year's presidential race, the stakes seem higher than ever. So what Western issues are coming to the fore as the candidates move through their campaigns? And what issues are getting left behind? 

Join High Country News Managing Editor Brian Calvert for an hour-long live radio discussion with our guests to understand the West's relevance in the national race.

>> Listen here (live at 6 p.m. MT on 04/06)

  • Jon Goldin-Dubois, president of the Boulder-based Western Resource Advocates. Golden-Duboise is an expert on West-wide natural resource and public land policy.
  • David Fottprofessor of political science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He offers perspective on the Western election season and presidential campaigning in the West.
