Podcast: Under Pressure

Glacier National Park is adapting to a typically busy summer in an atypical year, plus the biggest stories from the last week

By Andy Viano

Dig even deeper into the biggest stories of the last seven days with the Beacon’s weekly podcast.

This week: summer in Northwest Montana unofficially begins when Glacier National Park’s Going-to-the-Sun Road opens in its entirety, but because of the coronavirus pandemic there will be no through travel this year. Assistant Managing Editor Tristan Scott is this week’s guest and he talks about how the park is adapting, why the Blackfeet Nation chose to cut off access to the east side of Sun Road and what the future may hold. Later, host Andy Viano runs through the biggest stories from the last seven days, including the ever-risking numbers of positive COVID-19 tests throughout the state, how Flathead County health officials are keeping up and news on the first significant wildfire of 2020.
