Rising journalists once again took over RadioACTive for Voices Amplified, a show done in collaboration between Salt Lake Community College, Amplify Utah and KRCL 90.9 FM.
As part of rallies and resources, Thursday’s episode kicked off by highlighting House Bill 40, legislation modeled after the federal Indian Child Welfare Act, which works to protect Native children during the adoption process.
Honorable Navajo Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton commented on the bill in a prerecorded audio clip.

For the first segment, Host Haily Askerlund sat down with Michelle Heafy and Josiah Everhart, the music duo behind local band OrcaMind, to discuss their electronic music, debut album and shows on the streaming platform Twitch.
Askerlund then chatted with local designer Sage Nelsen about fashion and Saturday’s Salt Lake Fashion Collective show, which exhibited Nelsen’s work, followed by a conversation about Utah drag’s scene and performance with performers Jenna Tailia and Veronika DaVil.
Sean Stetson closed with “Sports with Sean,” mentioning Tiger Woods’s plan to build a golf course near Park City and its implications amid a state-wide drought.
