Aspen Times reporter Scott Condon joined KDNK's Gavin Dahl to dicuss his feature on how local farmers are reponding to the COVID-19 crisis. He spoke to the leaders of Rock Bottom Ranch, Wild Mountain Seeds, Two Roots Farm, and the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute about farmers markets, CSAs, and other ways they hope to grow their impact in the Roaring Fork Valley in 2020. 

Aspen Times reporter Carolyn Sackariason talks on Booked about her story, Community to Lose a Significant Chunk of Designated Affordable Housing, which found that 22 affordable housing developments with APCHA deed restrictions will expire over the next twenty years.

Meet Snowmass Sun reporter Maddie Vincent. She's new in the valley, but not new to journalism. In fact, she's the third generation of her family to pursue the profession. KDNK station manager Gavin Dahl asked her about her multiple degrees, why she's excited to cover Snowmass, and quizzed her on when the Snowmass Village town council meets. (She passed, of course.) Tune in to KDNK in Snowmass Village at 99.9FM.

Aspen Art Museum

As the Aspen Art Museum celebrates 40 years, we speak with Aspen Times arts editor Andrew Travers about his new book-length essay, "Directly Ahead: The Aspen Art Museum, 1979-2019" part of a new book commemorating the first four decades of the museum called Something Greater. Travers had full access to the museum's archives, and talks about its international reputation and how it's changed over the years.
