Listener, in the spirit of flexibility and experiment, we’re changing things up with our Friday news programming to bring you one chunky program. We’ll combine our Get An Earful and Times-Independent roundup, occasionally throwing in an extra or two. So on this inaugural test run, we start with a feature story from a radio partner on Juneteenth, a day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Then, we’ll hear an excerpt from a conversation on This Week in Moab with a Black Lives Matter Moab organizer. And finally, we have our weekly conversation with The Times-Independent.
