December 2023: For this year's 5280 "Best of the Mountain West" feature, I pitched Montana state Representative Zooey Zephyr, hoping I'd get to meet her. It worked, and we met on a patio near the University of Montana soccer fields, not knowing the women's team would be warming up for a game at the time. So my recording of our interview has this hilariously timed background music--just as she started talking about the importance of democracy, the national anthem swelled behind her. Not bad. Read about her--and two other very cool places in Montana and Wyoming that I wrote about, plus many more the rest of the contributors added--in the December issue.
