Make Idaho Better is the easiest way to be a part of state and local solutions. Do your part.

Leader interviews are one of the most direct ways we help our subscribers make their voices heard and make a difference — we take their views directly to leaders and experts on the topic and get their reactions!

It’s great for our subscribers to hear what they think, but it also is great for the interviewee because they can reinforce our findings or they can set the record straight. Win-win!

In this interview, I chat with Kate Leadbetter, Meriwether Cider co-owner. Check it out!
