Sounds of the High Country: Gas Money at Public UniversitiesKDNK is lauching a new collaboration with High Country News, the environmental magazine based in Paonia, Colorado. We're calling it "Sounds of the High Country."
Every two weeks, we'll bring listeners a sneak peak at the upcoming issue of the magazine. We'll pick some of the best stories from the magazine's pages and air interviews with the writers and editors who tell them. The January 21st issue of High Country News is all about environmental education, and this week KDNK's Nelson Harvey spoke with Joshua Zaffos, a journalist whose feature story in the issue highlights how extractive industries are funding an increasing amount of research at public universities across the west.
