Facing West

We explore the ever-changing face of the Mountain West, sometimes in a car, sometimes on a bicycle, maybe on a horse but always with an open ear. Produced by the Mountain West News Bureau, a consortium of NPR member stations covering the region.

Season One: Across The Great Divide: One journalist. One bicycle. Hundreds of miles riding along the continental divide, listening to rural Westerners ahead of one of the most contentious elections in modern history. But what we hear goes way beyond politics and into our nation's future. First season hosted by Nate Hegyi.
