A documentary about the Malheur Ranch Occupation . . . A pair of Idaho gubernatorial candidates discusses their positions . . . Retiring Boise State President Bob Kustra on his future . . . and a Teddy Roosevelt impressionist visits Treasure Valley.
- When news broke of the occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon, documentarian David Byars knew he had to go there with a camera. The result was 'No Man's Land,' a chronicle of the 40-day occupation by public land advocates who saw federal land policies as an infringement on their liberty. Byars joined Idaho Matters in studio to discuss the making of his picture, which debuts on Idaho Public Television on Monday evening.
- Idaho Matters begins the first in a five-part series presenting a Q&A with Idaho's gubernatorial candidates. On Monday, we'll hear Boise State Public Radio's Matt Guilhem speak with Democratic candidate Paulette Jordan, then BSPR's James Dawson will speak with Republican contender Raul Labrador.
- Boise State University president Bob Kustra is retiring after 15 years. He joins Idaho Matters to discuss the growth of the university under his tenure and future plans for both himself and Boise State.
- Joe Wiegand has been performing as Theodore Roosevelt since 2004; his impersonation is so masterful he has performed at the White House, and has played the 26th president in documentaries. He will be performing in the Treasure Valley next week and he'll join Gemma Gaudette in studio to talk about imperonating 'The Hero of San Juan.'
