Fascinating!

As a big fan of 5280, I already read a lot of their stories. But it’s fun to listen to and “meet” the writers and editors who make those stories happen on this podcast! I’ve also learned a lot about what makes these stories possible — and many of the details are often surprising!

Authentic

No cuts or edits here—love the easy-breezy conversations and talent. The participants go deep and are uncut. They talk about all things Colorado, in a tight, nice <30-minute episode. Highly recommended for Front Rangers.

Easy listening

10-year Front Ranger here… loving hearing the eds comment on their features and getting deeper dives on CO culture. Geoff is the man.
