Tyler Measom is a Salt Lake City-based filmmaker who tackled the issue of religious deception in Sons of Perdition. He continues to explore deceit in his latest film, An Honest Liar, a documentary about the life and career of the renowned stage magician turned scientific skeptic of the paranormal, James “The Amazing” Randi. It opens Friday at Broadway Centre Cinemas, so Measom stopped by the KRCL studios to talk about the nature of deception, magic, psychics, and our need to believe.
Measom will do a Q&A after screenings Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
This edition of Just One Question comes with the help of Aldine, KRCL’s Punk Rock Farmer. He’s been helping us out with DIY gardening tips and strategies by sharing what he does at home or talking with other gardeners, urban farmers, and subject matter experts in town.

He learned a lot about growing stuff from his Dad, but one of the things he’s decided he doesn’t want to do is use poisons and pesticides. And that means there’s Just One Question from the Punk Rock Farmer—how do you safely dispose of pesticides and other household hazardous waste?

This time The R.O.I. brings you details about First Step House, which is dedicated to helping people struggling from substance use disorders build lives of meaning, purpose.
According to Shawn McMillen of First Step House, more than 95,000 Utahns are in need of substance abuse treatment each year — only 35,000 get it.
In partnership with the Veterans Administration, First Step House is building a new residential treatment facility for male veterans on 400 S. 500 E. in Salt Lake City. It will be unique among FSH centers in that it will include a commercial kitchen to teach clients job skills in a coffee shop and bakery. KRCL’s Lara Jones talks with Executive Director Shawn McMillen for this R.O.I.:

You’ll hear from:
Bryan Schott of Utah Policy, who gave us regular updates all session long. For the politically passionate, check out Utah Policy’s session wrap here: http://utahpolicy.com/index.php/features/today-at-utah-policy/5084-bob-bernick-s-notebook-wrapping-up-the-2015-session
Jenn Gonnelly of the League of Women Voters of Utah, a woman and a group devoted to turning all of us into 10-minute activists. Check out the bill list they put together this session: http://lwvutah.org/Legislative%20files/2015_leg/Bill_List.html
RyLee Curtis of the Utah Health Policy Project will join that conversation too to talk about the broad coalition that backed Governor Herbert’s Healthy Utah plan (SB164) to expand Medicaid but couldn’t win over lawmakers the way SB296 supporters did.
Also in this specialty show, you’ll hear from two veteran political reporters, Robert Gehrke of The Salt Lake Tribune and Lisa Riley Roche of the Deseret News with their picks and pans for the legislative session.
Plus if you support the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes, the show includes parts of Lara’s interview with Sen. Mark Madsen, a Republican from Saratoga Springs who ran a bill on the subject this session. He’s down but not out. For more on that subject, click here.
