Election conspiracies, naloxone and the Utah Jazz

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Activists pushing for a forensic audit of the 2020 election in Utah, rally at the Capitol on Oct. 20, 2021, prior to the 1pm Judiciary Interim Committee’s meeting on election integrity, to Òhear presentations on perspectives regarding election integrity” according to the agenda.

A conspiracy-fueled push for a 2020 election audit in Utah falls flat during a legislative committee meeting. With municipal elections underway across the state, an explainer on ranked-choice voting. A program that makes naloxone available in local libraries to try to save lives. And the Utah Jazz start their season strong against a lackluster foe.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Matt Canham, Andy Larsen and Kolbie Peterson, along with editorial page editor George Pyle, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling 801-355-TALK.
