Think you’re funny? Time to prove it. Josh Black of Salt Lake Acting Company issued a call for submissions for "We've Got The Laughs," a digital short series to feature the cast of SLAC’s now-sidelined Saturday's Voyeur cast. 

  • We Got the Laughs is a 10-part, weekly entertainment series to be released via SLAC’s blog and social channels. These comedic shorts (1 to 3 1/2 minutes in length) are intended to uplift, entertain, and most importantly, provide much needed laughter to our community. The best part? They’re opening up script submissions to the public. Click here for details. Authors of the entries chosen to be fully produced by Salt Lake Acting Company will receive a stipend of $500.

Lauren Simpson of Alliance for a Better Utah, which recently published its annual Progress Report for the 2020 General Legislative Session. This year, lawmakers were graded for their votes on 54 important bills organized into four categories: Strong Communities, Equal Rights, Good Government, and Sustainable Future. All 104 legislators received overall grades, as well as grades in each of the four categories. 

Thirty of Utah’s clean energy and energy efficiency businesses and local governments joined Utah Clean Energy in a joint letter to Utah’s congressional leaders, calling for critical investment in our clean energy economy. RadioACTive Community Correspondent Tamrika Khvtisiashvili led a roundtable discussion on the issues with the following panelists:
