Episode 14: A backlash against extremism

In a time of polarized and strident politics, a newly formed Idaho group is trying to counter what it calls “disinformation and extremism” in Idaho politics.

This week on the podcast, Kevin Richert interviews Mike Satz, executive director of The Idaho 97 Project. They talk about the group’s objectives, how Satz’s background as a University of Idaho law professor and administrator informs his group’s education positions, and about Satz’s firsthand experience teaching critical race theory.
