University of Idaho President Scott Green Friday countered legislators' concerns about a social justice narrative at his school, saying it was a "false narrative created by conflict entrepreneurs who make their living sowing fear and doubt with legislators and voters."

This week the southern part of Idaho returned to crisis standards of care in hospitals, as the omicron surge of COVID-19 has begun to overwhelm hospitals. Meanwhile a Boise homelessness protest is being threatened by a right-wing group, and the legislature is wrestling with what to do about higher education budgets. We catch up on these news items and more on the latest edition of the Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable.

Our panel this week:

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.
