Wyoming spirit captured here

LOVE that open spaces episodes are in podcast form. News, stories, important conversations, content with a distinctly Wyoming feel, there is nothing not to treasure about this show. Keeps me company on road trips or cold afternoons at home. Can’t get enough Open Spaces.

Another liberal mouthpiece.

Thought that I might find one decent podcast regarding our great state, unfortunately yet again the Left continues to make inroads even in the most conservative of regions. Evident here with their not so unbiased selection of subject matter from crossdressing, to referring to abortion as a human right. Watch out to what media you consume as it’s dominated by shallow shortsighted self serving individuals with no concept as to what’s at stake.
