More To Say

KUER

Last November, Christine Durham retired from Utah’s Supreme Court.  She was our state’s first female Supreme Court Justice.  She joined Doug Fabrizio on RadioWest, and we’ve excerpted part of their conversation about her judicial philosophy, gender discrimination and her legacy.

Utah Jail Deaths

Jan 11, 2018
KUER

Inmates in Utah jails die at a higher rate than any state in the country. Just as concerning as the numbers is the secrecy. Utah’s jail standards, the rules by which they operate, are not available to the public. KUER's Whittney Evans has been looking into this for the past few months.

Remembering Thomas S. Monson

Jan 4, 2018
KUER

LDS Church president Thomas S. Monson was known for an almost parable-like storytelling ability. He asked Mormons to be honest, kind and to serve their fellow man, every day. But, when it came to controversy and current issues, he was often quiet.

You're tired of the news, right? Well, you're in luck then. This week we have a special holiday More To Say episode that explores what some (primarily KUER's Lee Hale) would call Utah's state candy: the chocolate cinnamon bear.

Serving Time

Dec 14, 2017
KUER

People feel protective of a good food dive. Locals often keep it a secret. There's one like that in Draper, in a nondescript building, just 30 paces from the Utah State Prison. It's called Serving Time Cafe and it's run entirely by female inmates. It was featured in a recent RadioWest film.

KUER

During his first official trip to Utah, President Donald Trump announced the largest cutback to national monument land in U.S. history. Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante will lose a total of 2 million acres together. While Trump made the announcement in Salt Lake City, KUER's Judy Fahys was in San Juan County talking with Utahns who will be most affected by the change.

Dispatch

Nov 30, 2017
KUER

When a 911 call is dialed, someone answers. There is a real human on the other end, trying to make sense of what is happening and trying to keep people from getting hurt. KUER's Erik Neumann walks us through one phone call that changed the life of an emergency dispatcher forever.

The Stigma Of Pornography

Nov 16, 2017
KUER

Watching pornography is often referred to as a sin. A sin that can greatly disrupt an individual’s life and even end relationships. But what if some of those negative consequences have more to do with the stigma surrounding porn than porn itself? Doug Fabrizio talks with KUER’s Lee Hale about how this stigma plays out in individual lives.

When Your Senator Blocks You

Nov 16, 2017
KUER

It’s been said that Twitter is the public square of our times, but some people say their elected officials would rather not have them there. In fact, they know they don’t because they’ve been blocked.  Doug Fabrizio talks with KUER’s Julia Ritchey about whether or not that should even be legal.
