Lots of hot topics for this week's Talk Back show. Here's a quick glance at what we'll be talking about:

On Monday, we will kick off the show with historian and author Colin Woodard. Woodard is the author of American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America. Woodard makes the case that America is composed of 11 major cultural groups that are geographically based and have been forged by history. Ancient views and rivalries between these groups, Woodard argues, help to explain much about American trends and the current state of the nations politics.

On Tuesday, we will speak to one of our most popular guests: constitutional scholar Rob Natelson. Can a treaty override the Constitution? Did a constitutional conspiracy hurt the Affordable Care Act? We'll touch on these issues and more during the show.

Wednesday through Friday are still up on the air, we are attempting to get the current candidates to be Missoula's next county attorney on the show. If they can't join us, we'll have open phones.
