Is merely threatening to kill a person a crime? A recent 10th Circuit ruling over turned a district court ruling that Aaron Michael Heineman’s violent poetry directed toward local professors was a protected form of speech. Nick welcomes attorney Eric Benson from Ray Quinney and Nebeker and Marissa Lang from the Salt Lake Tribune to discuss this bizarre case and the larger question; does the First Amendment protect violent hate speech?
The KRCL Fall Radiothon is almost here and we’d love to have your help! The Drive is Saturday, September 27th through Sunday, October 5th. How about answering phones for your favorite show?

Utah has one of the largest gender wage gaps in the nation. On average, women make 30 percent less than their male counterparts. To address this disparity, the Utah Legislature has authorized the Women in the Economy Commission, comprised of elected officials, academics and business leaders. Nick welcomes Commission co-chairs, outgoing House Speaker Becky Lockhart and outgoing House minority leader Rep. Jen Seelig. They discuss challenges and solutions to closing the wage gap and providing opportunity for all Utahns.
