U.S. Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, held a Town Hall over the phone for 25,000 Montanans last night. 

According to a spokesperson, a telecommunication system dialed 200,000 subscribers at 6:15 p.m. yesterday evening.

The tele-Town Hall comes just days after about 3 dozen constituents confronted Daines at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport demanding to speak to him face-to-face. Daines declined at that time.

Matt Powell-Palm was notified the Senator was going to arrive in Bozeman last Friday afternoon on Facebook through a group called The Gallatin Progressive Action Network.

He wanted face to face time with Senator Daines, something he says the Senator has not given his Montanan constituents enough of lately.

The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival will experiment with programming sans visuals for the first time this year.

That's because audio producer and University of Montana journalism professor, Jule Banville, knows there's a demand for Montana-made audio documentaries. After piloting the successful Last Best Podcast Festival last fall, Banville sought a way to do something like that again on a larger scale.

Great Falls Tribune Crime Reporter, Seaborn Larson, often pairs mug shots with his stories. He has several concerns about a Montana measure that would bar public release of mug shots until after a person is convicted of a crime.

This Saturday, people across the state are headed to the Capitol in Helena to participate in the Women's March on Montana in conjunction with marches across the world.

Many are traveling from southeastern Montana, for different reasons, but united by a common message: Women's rights are human rights.
