Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable: August 28, 2020

Katherine Jones
Idaho Statesman
Protester Ammon Bundy is arrested by Idaho State Police for the second time at the statehouse this week. Bundy led a 2016 occupation of a wildlife refuged in Oregon.

It was another busy week of news in the Gem State. With a turbulent special session of the Idaho Legislature highlighted by protests and arrests, there's plenty to dissect on the Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable. We'll learn what bills were passed, which ones weren't and what they mean for you. Plus, we'll learn about an ambitious proposal for the Expo Idaho site (also known as the Western Idaho Fairgrounds). 

Our journalist panel today: 

  • James Daswon of Boise State Public Radio News
  • Rebecca Boone of the Associated Press
  • Don Day of Boise Dev

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
Hi! I’m Gemma Gaudette, the host of the award-winning show, Idaho Matters. During the day you’ll find me researching and writing about all the fascinating topics we tackle on our show. And of course, at noon, each weekday you’ll find me live behind the microphone as Idaho Matters airs.
