    Hi Kat ~ your interviews are fantastic with topics so relevant. I heard a report from indigenous communities in New Mexico of the open pit uranium tailings that blow onto the coal that is transported out of that area. I believe one of the callers referred to coal contamination.

    Really love your programming Kat. Congratulations + good luck. I hope you don’t experience what most women of color programmers experience with this progressive radio station.

    Always love listening to Upfront, but I have to say this to Cat: call a spade a spade please. Castro DIED. He did not ‘transition” for Pete’s sake! Is there some reason why you cannot just say the word? Is this more of the same renaming of everything to make it sound better?? There is such a thing as taking PC language and interest too far, and likely one of the reasons why “liberal media” in the eyes of non liberals gets so much flak. Enough.
