July 18, 2014 in RadioActive by KrclAdmin RadioActive_336x280

by Nick Burns,

Two former attorney generals, 23 felony counts and the largest political scandal in Utah history. Nick Burns welcomes Salt Lake Tribune investigative reporters Robert Gehrke and Tom Harvey to unpack the history and the charges . At the heart of the scandal is a “pay to play” culture that allegedly included bribes, gifts, and the exchange of campaign contributions for special consideration. Both Swallow and Shurtleff maintain their innocence.

 

Dig, Baby, Dig: The Debate over Utah Tar Sands

July 14, 2014 in RadioActive by KrclAdmin RadioActive_336x280

by Troy Williams

What the heck is Tar/Oil Sands? Some see it as a  sensible fuel option, others an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Nick Burns hosts a debate between Cody Stewart, energy adviser for the Utah Department of Energy and Rob Deluc, staff attorney from Western Resources Advocates. The two spar over the proposed mining of PR Springs by US Oil Sands, which will be the first Tar Sands mining in the United States. We discuss the potential impact on wildlife habitat, drinking water, and the feasibility of post-mining land reclamation.

 

The Hobby Lobby Fallout

July 7, 2014 in RadioActive by KrclAdmin RadioActive_336x280

by Troy Williams

My rights versus yours. In the landmark Hobby Lobby case, the Supreme Court of the United States has now ruled that your employer’s deeply held religious beliefs can limit your access to birth-control. What happens when religious liberty collides with a woman’s liberty to control her reproductive health? And how might the Hobby Lobby decision have an adverse impact on LGBT liberty? To discuss these questions, Nick Burns welcomes back Heather Stringfellow from Planned Parenthood of Utah and Maryann Martindale from the Alliance for a Better Utah.
