  • Short-term rentals and homeowners.
  • Idaho Historical Museum and Gem State women.
  • Telluride Mountain Film Festival.

- Short-term rentals have become a hot button issue in Boise as companies like Airbnb make it easier to do these kind of rentals. Mayor Dave Bieter recently proposed restrictions for short-term rental owners, including that homeowners live in the building they rent and obtain a permit. But the trade group for realtors in the city is pushing back, citing that property owners should be able to rent as they see fit. 

- Idaho Historical Museum is planning a new exhibit that focuses on female contributers and figureheads throughout the history of the state. But there's a catch: they want your artifacts to be part of the exhibit. Idaho Matters talks with the museum about how this upcoming project could change the way people view the history of the state.

- The Telluride Mountain Film Festival focuses on documentaries about everything from climate change to mountain climbing. The festival is coming to Boise this Friday to show off the fasinating collection of documentaries. They join Idaho Matters to preview the event.
