Idaho Public Televisiondecided to do a little research on the state’s candy tradition so we asked Joan Cartan-Hansen, who produced the "Sweet Idaho" episode and "Idaho Experience" series producer Bill Manny to join Idaho Matters and tell us more.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
