This week hear the sounds of Wyoming coal country, and find out how life there connects to life here in the Northwest. Host Ashley Ahearn explores the largest open pit mine in the world, visits with one rancher who’s concerned about the effects of coal mining - and then heads to Bellingham, Washington to check out the proposed site of what could one day be the largest coal export terminal on the West coast.
