“Idaho has given you a place to dream. What can you give Idaho?”
If you are looking for a way to give back, this episode is for you.
May 1st through the 4th is “Idaho Gives”, a program of the Idaho Nonprofit Center designed to bring the state together, raising money and awareness for Idaho non-profits.
We sit down with Kevin Bailey, CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, to discuss what Idaho Gives is all about. We talk about how to search for non-profits, and why non-profits are so important in Idaho. Hint, it has a lot to do with our level of government funding. We learned that only half of Idaho non-profits can meet the demand for their organization’s services. Donating through Idaho Gives can help increase an organization’s abilities to meet demand.
This year there are over 600 non-profits participating. From large and recognizable non-profits to the lesser know organizations such as the “The Rat Retreat".
Last year $3.69M was raised during Idaho Gives. This year the goal was set for over $4 million. Excited to see Idaho reach that goal!

In this episode we sit down with historian Mark Iverson of Idahistory. In this first conversation we decided not to delve deep into specific history, but more so discuss WHY history. The importance of learning the lessons of humanity’s past and the dangers of marginalizing others. Our discussion touches on trends of migration in America and the search for the American dream. We discuss how knowing history’s patterns and listening for both sides can bring us a better understanding in current situations. And how many of these universal trends can be found right here in Idaho. We sit down together to set a foundation for future conversations about Idaho history. And how we can use those lessons as tools moving forward.

Did you realize there's a national home improvement/house-flipping TV show based in our city? No? Well, we're excited to put you in the know! The Boise Boys is a unique HGTV gem that highlights Boise, tangibly raises the bar of home offerings, and gives us a good chuckle in the process. In this episode we meet with co-creators and partners Luke Caldwell and Clint Robertson to talk about the show, give us a behind-the-scenes look into making a TV show while trying to run a business, and offer a sneak peak into their next project that will have a genuine positive impact on our city and entertain us along the way.
