Radio Golden Episode #4: The “My Eminent Domain is Bigger Than Yours” edition, special guest Nathan Richie of the Golden History Museums, youth access to tobacco products, and more.

We published Episode #4 about a week ago. We had a great time, focusing mostly on the latest shenanigans and on a terrific interview with Golden History Museums director Nathan Richie.

We also experimented in this episode with a different format. In response to a listener suggestion (thanks Eric!), instead of a shorter episode with a separate extended interview, we recorded everything in a single podcast. The show is longer (about 50 minutes) but we didn’t break up our conversation with our guest. Let us know what you think!

On episode #4 you’ll hear:

  • 02:03 – Jeffco’s beltway shenanigans at the State Legislature
  • 14:21 – GURA’s new parking lot
  • 18:12 – Windy Saddle’s request for a liquor license for their outdoor seating
  • 22:35 – A conversation with Nathan Richie, the director of the Golden History Museums
  • 40:45 – Getting Involved
  • 44:00 – The Mailbox
  • 44:37 – Community Chatter

And here are some links related to some of the issues we brought up during podcast:

Golden History Museums: Summer Camp!

It’s tough to keep track of everything that goes on at the Golden History Museums during the summer, but I want to mention at least one of the great options if you are looking for ways to keep the kids busy.  The Museums host seven weeklong sessions starting June 7 at Clear Creek History Park in historic downtown Golden.  Some of the activities include sampling school subjects from the 1800s in the one-room schoolhouse, testing their volunteer firefighter skills, trying their hand at old-fashioned chores, playing vintage baseball for the historic Golden Reds, making old-time crafts and toys, and feeding the chickens.  Learn more on the Golden History Museums website or by calling them (303-278-3557).
