Wyoming spirit captured here

LOVE that open spaces episodes are in podcast form. News, stories, important conversations, content with a distinctly Wyoming feel, there is nothing not to treasure about this show. Keeps me company on road trips or cold afternoons at home. Can’t get enough Open Spaces.

News gone wrong.

Yes I understand the state is changing, and yes I understand that people are changing, but this is purely liberal bias news. To put out content about state housing for illegal immigrants, regional popularity for the wealthy, gay or whatever sexual agendas, white people talking about Native American arts and welfare, and state geopolitical agendas just shows this NPR style network is motivated by everything this state has tried to keep from becoming. It is a very unfortunate reminder that there is almost nowhere left to escape to.
