Peter is taking a week of vacation, and that means I've got double duty. It also means I have to get up at 2:30 a.m... ugh. But never fear, I plan on bringing all new Talk Back episodes everyday while Peter is away.

During the week, my buddy Bob Seidenschwartz from the Montana World Affairs Council will be helping me schedule guests and keep the phone lines running.

On Monday, we will have open phones for the first half hour, followed with an engaging discussion about China with a University of Montana professor Steve Levine.

On Tuesday, we will have a long-form series of open phones with Missoula City Councilman Adam Hertz and Missoula Representative Ellie Hill.

On Wednesday , we are still trying to fill in a guest for the first hour. During the second hour, we will speak with Lou Somogyi, editor of Blue and Gold Illustrated about the confluence of cheating, high standards, and football.

On Thursday, from 9 to 10 we will speak with the head of the World Affairs Council of America, CEO Bill Clifford.

On Friday, we will close out the week with open phones. No surprise here. After that... I'm going camping.
