Colorado Matters really matters

I’ve been listening to this program for years and I am continually intrigued, inspired and challenged by the variety of topics the program tackles about our great state. Ryan Warner is a superb host and interviewer, and I’m enjoying getting to know Chandra Thomas Whitfield as a host as well. Keep up the great work.

Loved Tom Hesse’s interview w the director Josh Berman and Trevor Kennison of the Netflix documentary Full Circle. Great reporting as always.

4/14/23 Ukraine War

The 4/14/23 episode on the war in Ukraine was great! Probably the best thing I’ve heard on CPR. Well Done!

i'm not a trumpite ,

Just name it LGBTIAA Matters already

I understand public radio will be slightly leaning left but this is too much. Ryan, start discounting what sycophants say and bring more general interest topics. Otherwise, start covering everyone, including little people, fat people, disabled people, neurodiverse people etc, equally. I’ll give it a few more weeks before unsubscribing.
