This week on Denverite Now…

1) Stephanie Snyder introduces the newest iteration of Denverite’s Readers’ Choice project and puts the call out to you, the listeners, for possible future topics. Denverite has been running the program in some form for almost a year, so a lot of reader questions have been answered already:
