  • Our consortium of regional reporters breaks down the week's headlines.
  • The World Village Fest brings together Treasure Valley communities.
  • This Is My Brave invites people to share experiences coping with mental illness.

Idaho Matters leads a roundtable discussion of the week's headlines with the region's top journalists. This week we speak with Idaho Public Television's Bill Manny and Seth Ogilvie and Scott McIntosh of the Idaho Press.

- The World Village Fest begins Friday and runs through Sunday at Cecil D. Andrus Park in Boise. Presented by Global Lounge, the festival draws together Idahoans from around the world for diverse music, food, storytelling and film screenings. Idaho Matters talks with the organizers about the event.

'This Is My Brave' is a community performance of storytellers sharing their experiences in an effort to reduce the stigma attached to mental illness. The group is hosting the next round of performances in Boise and we talk about auditions with producer Siva Laughlin and performer Brooke Lacey.
