Episode #43: Brian Maffly, Salt Lake Tribune

Matt talks to the Salt Lake Tribune environmental journalist about three of his recent stories. First, they chat about the Bears Ears monument controversy, including a recent heated hearing in which some legislators floated claims that environmentalists have manipulated Native leaders. Next, they discussed Utah’s bid to invest $53 million in state money to build a coal export terminal in Oakland and Brian’s excellent story about some of the potential conflicts of interest at play. Lastly, they talked about Terry Tempest Williams’ departure from the University of Utah.
