Our friends Jeremy Parkin and Jordan Halliday from Which Side Podcast are using “Labor Day” to host the community at the first-ever Which Side Rendezvous, a camp-out at PR Springs.
A little about the best podcast in Utah: “Some episodes will make you angry as hell about an issue while others will make you embarrassed that you are listening. We will bring you guests [including many local Wasatch Front organizers but also Will Potter, author of Green Is the New Red and Lauren Regan, staff attorney at Civil Liberties Defense Center] that are living the life just like you. Yes very important topics and conversations happen on the show, just like they do around a table full of friends but with us it will never be boring and unlike some of your friends you can turn us off as needed.”
Come hang out, meet new people, play games, go to a workshop/panel discussion or just enjoy nature with awesome people.
