Homeground Radio broadcast from February 3, 2020. According to host and interviewer Brian Kahn: “So much is happening in today’s world that it’s hard to remember what came before. A good example is Montana’s 1972 Constitution -- and what it meant for democracy in our state. Evan Barrett doesn’t want us to forget.” In this discussion, Evan Barrett discusses the Montana history recorded in his “In the Crucible of Change” video series about the progressive changes that occurred in the period from 1965 to 1980.

Homeground Radio is a production of Artemus Common Ground and is public domain material.
