From local politics, to arts and culture, to history, the environment and beyond, “In the Hive” explores the issues and ideas that tie Utah together. Hosted and produced by KCPW’s Roger McDonough, each episode of this award-winning current affairs program explores a different theme–such as public transportation, homelessness, and air quality–and features conversations with experts in their fields as well as members of the public who have a stake in the show’s topic.
