  • On this episode, COVID-19 is surging and some are calling for required vaccinations, including some students at the University of Wyoming. We will also get an update on the COVID-19 challenges in Teton County. In Laramie, houses are scarce. And the houses that are available are often unaffordable. It's been a record hot summer, and that's causing some Mountain Westerners to change their way of life–or at least the way they cool their home. Those stories and the finale in the Tribal jail series.
