March 13, 2014 in KRCL Music Blog by KrclAdmin DBTEngOceanCoverart_400

Drive-By Truckers released their 12th release today, English Oceans. The album is consistent with its tone, it’s simplistic and not full of studio magic. The five of them come together to create a fantastic new album, full of great energy. Most of the album was written by Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, it’s the most Cooley has ever contributed on a DBT album.

Drive-By Truckers are an act to see live to truly appreciate their deeply rooted, southern rock talents. (more…)

The Moral & Economic Argument for Medicaid

March 10, 2014 in RadioActive by KrclAdmin RadioActive_336x280

by Troy Williams

It seemed like a no brainer. Three commissioned studies determined that the most cost-effective and efficient path the State can take to cover 123,000 low-income Utahns is to simply expand Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act. But politics in Utah is never that simple. The Utah Legislature is saying “no” to $430 million in revenue. Nick welcomes Jean Hill from the Catholic Diocese, Rylee Curtis from the Utah Health Policy Project and Danny Harris from the AARP of Utah. Our guests argue that accepting the money through the ACA makes sense both morally and economically.
