'Facing West' Podcast Looks At Political Divide In Idaho And Mountain West States



As the country continues to wait anxiously for the results of the presidential election, one thing is for sure: we remain a deeply polarized nation. That’s the focus of the first season of a new podcast called “Facing West” from the Mountain West News Bureau

Community engagement reporter Nate Hegyi is the host and he joins Idaho Matters live to tell us about a cross-region bicycle tour he made this fall to learn from people on both sides of the divide.


As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
