In today’s podcast episode, we listen to some of the Speeches given at this weekend's first-ever Pride Event in Estes Park and an interview with ‘Ego Death,’ the punk band that played at the Pride and Punk fundraiser for our local skate park.

The speeches include Estes Park Mayor Wendy Koenig, Lars Sage, and others.

Lars Sage is the gallery manager of the Art Center of Estes Park, President of the Board of the Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies, part of the original group that organized the Estes Arts District, and a member of the first Board. Lars has been involved in the Estes Park art scene for nearly ten years.

We then speak about the Supreme Court’s overturning of 50 years of women's health rights. My 16-year-old daughter joins us to tell us how she feels about the decision as a young woman just finding her way in the world.
