  • On this episode, Wyoming National Guard whistleblowers are saying they got retaliated for trying to go down the official channels of reporting sexual harassment and workplace hostility complaints. Much of the water in the West is already designated in a deal that was made when there was a lot of precipitation. A climbing project outside the Wind River Reservation is years into planning. But the Tribes don't feel like they've been brought to the table. Plus an interesting conversation on the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. Those stories and more.
