The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

From President Donald Trump’s early use of "fake news" to his former advisor Kellyanne Conway talking about "alternative facts," there has been a feeling among many that too many Americans can’t even agree on what truth is.

John Carlson and Tracy Fessenden of Arizona State University's Recovering Truth Project wrote a column addressing the importance of truth to our next steps as a nation following the results of this month’s election.

The Show spoke with Phil Boas of the Republic for more about why this was something he wanted to address on the op-ed page.
