When Your Senator Blocks You

2/15/2018
More
These days it’s perfectly normal for lawmakers at the state and federal level to be on Twitter. President Trump, of course, tweets frequently. And Utah’s representatives are no different. Local lawmakers Todd Weiler and Jim Dabakis are both Twitter users with lots of followers. But what does it mean when a politician blocks someone on social media? Should that even be allowed to happen? KUER’s Julia Ritchey joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about it. Original story:...

The Conservative Case For The Death Penalty

2/8/2018
More
Doing away with the death penalty is usually thought of as a liberal cause, and the arguments are often about the morality of executing someone, or wrongful convictions. But now some conservatives are lining up against capital punishment too — for reasons of their own. KUER’s Whittney Evans joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about why.

The Price of Textbooks

2/1/2018
More

More
KUER’s Nicole Nixon has been looking into the sexual dynamics at Utah’s State House. She spoke with some of the women — legislators and lobbyists — who work there. With powerful men in media and politics around the country facing allegations of sexual misconduct, the Utah legislature—so far—has been spared a major scandal. But the people Nicole talked to describe a condescending and sexist culture on the hill. Original Story:...

Utah Jail Deaths

1/11/2018
More
Inmates in Utah jails die at a higher rate than any state in the country. Just as concerning as the numbers is the secrecy. Utah’s jail standards, the rules by which they operate, are not available to the public. KUER's Whittney Evans has been looking into this for the past few months.

Remembering Thomas S. Monson

1/4/2018
More
LDS Church president Thomas S. Monson was known for an almost parable-like storytelling ability. He asked Mormons to be honest, kind and to serve their fellow man, every day. But, when it came to controversy and current issues, he was often quiet.

Serving Time

12/14/2017
More
People feel protective of a good food dive. Locals often keep it a secret. There's one like that in Draper, in a nondescript building, just 30 paces from the Utah State Prison. It's called Serving Time Cafe and it's run entirely by female inmates. It was featured in a recent RadioWest film. Link to original video: https://films.radiowest.org/film/serving-time

President Trump And Public Lands

12/7/2017

The Stigma Of Pornography

11/16/2017
More
Watching pornography is often referred to as a sin. A sin that can greatly disrupt an individual’s life and even end relationships. But what if some of those negative consequences have more to do with the stigma surrounding porn than porn itself? Doug Fabrizio talks with KUER’s Lee Hale about how this stigma plays out in individual lives. Original story: In Religious Communities, Stigma Of Pornography Brings Consequences Of Its Own
