I know a lot of you will be traveling on and around the Thanksgiving holiday and Thanksgiving weekend here in Montana. If so, stay tuned to Montana Talks. We'll have a great lineup for you on through to the weekend.

For our statewide listeners from 9-10AM on Thursday, we'll feature a re-broadcast of our conversation with Dr. Scott Sears from St. Vincent Healthcare. We spent the hour talking about some of the main medical questions he has been fielding across Montana, plus we talked about how to keep that Thanksgiving weight off.

Then on Friday's statewide show, we'll feature our conversation with the new chancellor of Montana Tech, Les Cook. We know that Montana Tech is a great campus. We know that Tech grads earn more money than Harvard grads. We know that Montana Tech is one of the best values you can find in 4-year education in the country. So why has enrollment been struggling? Tune in Friday to hear that conversation

Plus, we spoke with Bill Ryan from Highlands College in Butte in a broader conversation about trades education- not only at the collegiate level, but also in our high schools across Montana. You can also catch that conversation on Friday's show on the following stations across the state:
