Today’s caller-driven radio program garnered several different topics of conversation. One caller brought attention to the fact that they feel judged and discriminated by medical professionals, and another caller corroborated that sentiment.

Several of the upcoming events associated with the Bethel Community Fair were discussed by a number of participants. Marijuana legality and it’s affects on the community was talked about, and a few callers had opinions on hunting on native-owned lands on the Gweek River.

A plethora of other topics were also sprinkled into the conversation. One of which was a reoccurring reference to chem-trails, and whether people should be concerning themselves with what some deem as conspiracy theory and others a viable threat.
