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.

Why do we feel better physically around water? What positive health effects does water have on humans? Tune in for our conversation with Dr. Wallace J. Nichols to learn about his #bluemind research.


The Confederation of Canada, in which British Colonies in present day Canada united into one dominion occurred on July 1, 1867 and this summer Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. To celebrate, there are Canadian parties being thrown both north and south of the 49th parallel this year. One of those parties will be at Treefort this year.

To get the low-down on Canada’s presence in Idaho, we had the Canadian Consul General in Seattle, James Hill, join us in studio to talk about who’s coming to Treefort, why America is so important to Canada, and how come poutine tastes so good!

Our theme of From Snow to Flow continues this week with a conversation about the Boise River with Idaho Fish and Game Regional Fisheries Manager Joe Kozfkay and Freshwater Trust Idaho Program Manager Christy Meyer. Our beloved Boise River brings life to the high desert and flows through the heart of the city on it’s way to meet the Snake. The Boise River is an incredible asset that has been taken for granted in the past. These days many individuals and groups are working hard to protect and improve its health and vitality.

We’ll talk with Joe about the Boise River fishery, how the river ran dry one day, and his favorite fish to catch. Christy will share the great work the Boise River Enhancement Network (BREN) is doing to continually improve its health and protect it from threats like the encroachment of development. BREN recently helped complete an in-stream aquatic habitat enhancement project that might just be helping little brown trout babies find shelter from these recent high flows.
