Open Spaces January 11, 2019

Episode description

On this episode, during the partial government shutdown, the oil and gas industry says it’s feeling the impact but critics say the industry is still getting a better deal than most. The legislature is back in session and it's considering changing the way it raises taxes. And we will look at how the gender wage gap extends to some of Wyoming's pro skiers. Those stories and our latest I Respectfully Disagree.
