- Conservation Voters for Idaho endorsed Lauren McLean to become Boise's next mayor. Although she didn't win outright in the November 5 election, McLean took 46% of the vote while incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter was backed by about 30%. We talk with CVI about their political influence, and how they choose to financially support candidates in light of Boise's results. 

- Idaho Matters interviews a longtime environmental reporter about his new book, which asks folks to consider the longterm ecological effects of our decisions. We talk with Boise-based author Niels Sparre Nokkentved about his new book, "To Think Like A Mountain."

- With Veteran's Day around the corner, the Veterans Administration typically sees a spike in volunteers and support, particularly focusing on health. But Idaho Military Legal Alliance is focused on helping veterans within the legal system. Idaho Matters talks to the alliance about their monthly walk-in clinics that they run in Boise and Caldwell.

- A local artist recently received a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts, to complete a project on the Lardo Bridge in McCall. Susan Madacsi joins Idaho Matters to discuss the process of planning and completing McCall's newest art project.
