Here’s this week’s episode of Denverite Now, your favorite Denver news podcast!

Here’s how our host, Paul Karolyi, describes this episode:

This week on Denverite Now…

1) Denverite’s first birthday party is on July 26 at Galvanize Platte, and you are invited.

RSVP here!

2) Erica Meltzer breaks down the new ordinance giving DIY and other unpermitted spaces a way to bring their buildings up to code. Her coverage – links below – is the latest of Denverite’s award-winning reporting about Denver’s response to the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland this past December.

Denver artists will get more time to bring their spaces into compliance, but what they really need is money

3) Kevin Beaty offers us a peek into the life of Aaron Walbert, a Capitol Hill resident and Medicaid recipient who says he’s afraid of losing his freedom under the recent Republican health care proposals. Here’s the story Kevin and Andy Kenney put together about Aaron and the human impacts of a Medicaid rollback:

Medicaid keeps him in his own Denver condo, but now he fears the nursing home
