  • Gun violence research.
  • Public TV special on Native American photos.
  • Basque women and resilence.
  • "Remembering how to be human."

- Since 1996, there's been almost no federal funding for gun research. Now, private organizations and universities are trying to fill that gap. We take a look at new research coming out investigating things like the effect of concealed carry laws on firearm injury and the expansion and improvement of a database that tracks gun deaths by suicide. 


-  At the turn of the 20th century, two women who never met each other both took photos of Native Americans in Idaho. The story of the photos and women is the subject of a new documentary on Idaho Public Television that airs Thursday, July 25. We get a preview of "Out of the Shadows," a story that looks at the two women and their work. 


- On the eve of the annual San Inazio Festival (July 26-28) we talk with Patty Miller of the Boise Basque Museum. She's curated a new exhibit with portraits and recordings showcasing the stories of Basque women in Idaho and in the Basque country "who made the decision to live in the United States, sometimes amidst great adversity." 


- What happens when a New York City artist moves to a Wyoming town with a population of 93? On this special from Wyoming Public Radio's podcast "HumaNature," we take a look at how a cross-country move to be closer to her subject inspired an artist.
