Ahhhhh! No Peter in the Talk Back studio this Friday! I don't know how we'll do it, but I'm sure we'll survive. On a positive note, by the end of the week, we'll know if Talk Back wins Show of the Year at the Montana Broadcasters Association awards. Root for us! Here's what is on the show this week...

On Monday, we will speak to students and teachers involved with the i3 Missoula project, which claims to be a model of 21st century education. i3 stands for Inspiring, Imaginative, Innovative and the kids we will have in studio are looking for problems in the Missoula area that they can solve. Call in with your ideas!

On Tuesday,  we will open up the studio to Ather Bajwa and Joshua Denny from S.G. Long Investments in Missoula. Both Ather and Josh are deeply involved in finance research and investments and are capable of dealing with all kinds of questions, so tell us what you've got on your mind.

On Wednesday, we will speak with former U.S. Ambassador to Senegal Mark Johnson about what he calls a "stunning development" in Iraq. What caused the recent rise of ISIS, what can or should be done in the region? There's lots of questions, we'll see if there are any answers.

On Thursday, we will speak with former member of the IMF Joanna Shelton.

On Friday, we will close out the week with a bout of open phones. Peter will be gone, I will be delirious and much in need of your help.  Call in and tell us what to talk about!
