Must Listen for All Coloradans

I finally feel like I get TABOR (Tax Payers Bill of Rights). Learning the history of it's passing and effects was much more fascinating than one would expect thanks to these great CPR reporters.

Can’t access episode 1

I have been trying to listen to this, but every sight has a brief intro, episode two and episode three. Very frustrating!

Helped me understand the issues

It was hard for me to follow this story in the paper. This brings it all together. Educational and entertaining.
