  • Our syndicate of reporters breaks down the week's headlines.
  • Idaho hosts the first state advisory board for the National Institute for Civil Discourse.

- Host Gemma Gaudette leads a round table discussion of the week's headlines with the region's top journalists. This week, Idaho Matters speaks with Seth Ogilvie of IPTV's Idaho Reports, Don Day of BoiseDev and Scott McIntosh from the Idaho Press.

- The National Institute for Civil Discourse was established in 2011 following the shooting in Tucson that killed six and injured 13, including former U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Today, the Institute is creating 50 advisory boards to be positioned in each state. Idaho is the first state to establish such a board and on Friday's Idaho Matters, we speak with Keith Allred, executive director of the Institute and advisory board members Walt Minnick and former Governor Butch Otter.
