In response to the national election and the appointment of people who continuously call into question the validity of science around important topics such as HUMAN CAUSED climate change, a group of passionate volunteers are organizing the Idaho March for Science in Boise on April 22nd, 2017.

This group is engaging and activating people from across the political spectrum to stand up in defense of science and the role it plays in protecting and enhancing our quality of life for all communities. They care about protecting the free exchange of ideas as our society continues to try to solve our most pressing environmental, health, economic, and social problems. Tune in to my conversation with two of the volunteer leaders in this effort in defense of science: Dick Jordan and Kevin Shrumm.

Dick Jordan is a science teacher with 35 years of experience (fun) inspiring the next generation of scientists and environmentalists and Kevin Shrumm is an undergrad student at Boise State studying Geoscience and Education.
