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.

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.
