    A Day in the Life of a Restaurant Trying to Survive the Pandemic

    A Day in the Life of a Restaurant Trying to Survive the Pandemic

    For a long time, a common refrain has been that more than half of restaurants close before even making it a year. Now think of the chances of survival if you opened one right before the pandemic — right before restaurants around the world had to shut down their in person business. As the virus has ebbed and flowed, the number of customers coming in has fluctuated wildly, but some of these businesses in Colorado have survived through mandates, inflation, supply chain issues, staffing shortages and now omicron. This is the story of Zomo Asian + American Eatery in Englewood. It’s a family story and a survival story. And in the end, it’s an ominous story about how long businesses can really survive in the face of a new, infectious wave of the pandemic.

    Humans Start Most Wildfires in Colorado. Why's It So Easy To Get Away With?

    Humans Start Most Wildfires in Colorado. Why's It So Easy To Get Away With?

    Some of the biggest wildfires in Colorado have cost lives and caused millions of dollars in damage. But without knowing how they started exactly, Coloradans can’t change policies to try to prevent new ones. And no one gets held accountable. CPR reporters Ben Markus and Veronica Penney explain what they found when they analyzed eighteen years of federal wildfire data, and talked to nearly a hundred people to understand the real world consequences of not being able to pinpoint how fires start in the age of climate change.
