Radio interview with WyoFile’s Samuel Western
If you’ve enjoyed reading Samuel Western’s recent three-part series, Hispanic Wyoming, then you’ll want to listen to his interview from Friday, May 13 on Open Spaces, Wyoming Public Radio’s original program about local issues and policy matters.
Wyoming Public Radio’s Molly Messick interviewed Western and Ed Munoz, who directs the University of Wyoming’s Chicano Studies Program. The discussion covers the state’s changing demographic trends, and how advances in agriculture — from mechanized farming to herbicides — have affected employment patterns around Wyoming.

In his series, Western takes WyoFile readers deep beyond the U.S. Census data that show how Hispanics are the fastest-growing minority group in the country.
A Shift From Agriculture ran on April 26 and The Jobs Machine of Campbell County appeared May 3. ‘A Good Place to Live’ is the third and final part of his series looking at changing immigration trends in the Cowboy State.
