Colorado is known as a purple state for good reason. Over the last two decades, the state has voted for an equal number of Republicans and Democrats for president, and registered voters are evenly split between Republicans, Democrats and Independents.

The state’s political identity is always up for grabs. Democrats want to prove it has become more of a blue state, but Republicans could show it’s more of a red state than anyone realized. So….it’s not so much red or blue...or even purple. It’s Purpl...ish.

Hosted by CPR News Reporter Sam Brasch, this podcast dives into the ...ish. Each month, he'll ask a big question about Colorado’s democracy and where it might be headed next. Subscribe and learn how state government can be fun, or at least fun-ish.

Good Job Public Radio

This is phenomenal.

I’ve been a public radio supporter for a few years and a podcast listener for the same amount of time. I really enjoyed my NPR podcasts, but to have local stations creating great content is one of the best things I’ve heard.

I would love to see more from CPR and more from other public radio stations so I can learn about different experiences.
