The Fallout from East High, Mushroom Growing 101, and a Cumbia Dance Party
Manage episode 358859632 series 2893283
This year alone there have been two shootings at East High School, prompting mass student walkouts, renewed calls for gun control, and, in a surprising turn of events, the return of police to Denver schools. So we are channeling our outrage with one of our favorite returning guests, Ann Marie Awad, and digging into gun laws, school safety, mental health, and more. Plus, underreported stories from the week and then Hey Denver editor Adrian González joins us to recommend some cool events for your weekend.
Read more about the stalled appointment of DIA CEO Phil Washington to run the FAA; and the show Bree mentioned featuring teen photography at PlatteForum.
Here are some links to the weekend events we discussed:
- Una Historia de la Cumbia! with Ciudad Reina (Five Points)
- Beginner Mushroom Cultivation Class (Wheat Ridge)
- Elephant Revival Reunion Show (RiNo)
- Brunch Run Club (Downtown)
