Saturday Morning Live for Jan. 13, 2018

Host Kris Halterman will interview Assoc. Prof. Hart Hodges on a recent study which compares the Economy of Whatcom County to other Washington State Counties, Other States, and the national trends.

Today’s program will not be available on podcast due to technical distortion from the recording equipment at Cascade Radio. My apologies for this as there was a lot of information shared on the show that is not on the Show Outline.
