- Amendments to the U.S. Constitution require a supermajority vote by Congress or a gathering of state delagates referred to as a "constitutional convention." Idaho Matters talks with Concordia University School of Law associate professor McKay Cunningham and Georgetown law professor David Super about the prospects of convening a "con-con."

- As millennials mature into adulthood, many are settling their families in the Treasure Valley. Idaho Matters looks at why this demographic is choosing this region over bigger, more urban markets.
