Host Lynn Ware Peek takes a break from exploring science to talk politics with five of the six Park City Council candidates. After collecting questions from listeners over the last week, and throwing in many of her own, the candidates answered questions on traffic and parking, snow levels, the local economy and, of course, dogs. Candidates also had the opportunity to ask each other the hard questions.
