The Mountain Life | August 3, 2022

TML 08-03-22.png

This week on The Mountain Life, author (00:48) Joanne Tubbs Kelly sheds light on an important, often taboo, topic — medical aid in dying. Joanne talks about her memoir, Walking Him Home helping my husband die with dignity, which brings her very personal story and journey as she helped her husband die.

Then, (25:38) Connor Ryan, a Protect Our Winters (POW) athlete and skier, joins the show. He hails from mixed heritage - Lakota and Irish. This informs his lust for wide-open spaces, big mountains, and traditional ceremonies.

Lynn Ware Peek is a long-time contributor to KPCW. She joined the station in 2008 with Tales from the Wasatch Back, was a reporter from 2012 to 2016, and co-hosts and produces two of KPCW’s Public Affairs Hour shows, The Mountain Life, on health and lifestyle, on Wednesdays and Cool Science Radio, tackling science and technology every Thursday.
Pete Stoughton is the Brand Relations Manager at Trail and Ultra Running as well as the Director of Programs at CCPC. Basically, he is the behind the scenes guy at TAUR. When he's not getting his TAUR on, or running 2-3,000 miles a year. His own personal running ranges from 100 mile races to track workouts. Nevertheless, a scenic run with friends is were he finds inner peace.
