Radio Bookclub: Rocky Mountain High

The July selection for the Radio Bookclub is Rocky Mountain High: Boom and Bust in the New Wild West by Boulder author Finn Murphy.

The book tells Finn’s own story of trying to capitalize on the recent hemp growing revolution in Colorado, only to watch those dreams crumble as the price of hemp plummeted.

This is Finn’s second visit to the Radio Bookclub.

This episode was recorded in front of an audience at the Boulder Bookstore on June 22 and broadcast on KGNU on Thursday, July 27 at 9 am.
