ENCORE: 'Wanna Know Idaho' Podcast Explores Jim Crow-Era Housing Discrimination

Oct 19, 2020

This originally aired on Sept. 1, 2020.

We’re excited to share a recent episode of Boise State Public Radio's Wanna Know Idaho podcast. The podcast explores the curious elements of life in Idaho… with you, our listeners! This month, we answer listener Debra Smith's question: “Did Idaho have any housing discrimination laws during the Jim Crow era?”

Smith and podcast producer Molly Wampler and question-asker talk to Boise State history professor Jill Gill to understand the history of housing discrimination in the Gem State. You can find the full story on the Wanna Know Idaho page, where you can also submit a question for us to investigate next time.
