Podcast: Best of Preps in a Pandemic

Staff Writer Micah Drew talks about putting together a memorable new edition of Best of Preps, complete with colored cornstarch at the fairgrounds, 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: Best of Preps is one of the Flathead Beacon’s longest running features but it’s been a while since the last one came out. The last two editions of the special section celebrating the area’s top high school athletes were canceled by the COVID-19 pandemic, so Staff Writer Micah Drew joins the show to talk about what it took to bring Best of Preps back and how this year’s jaw-dropping photos came to life (hint: it involves throwing cornstarch into a coworker’s face). Later, host Andy Viano runs down the biggest stories from the last seven days, including doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on the way to Flathead County and a new health officer stepping into his old job to try and steady the county health department.
