His voice alone foreshadows good things: It’s smart, calm, and even-handed—which is exactly how you could describe Warner’s work as the host of Colorado Public Radio’s Colorado Matters. From hot-button political issues to more academic historical pieces, Warner’s interviews are always engaging and thought-provoking. Every time we turn on the radio, something he’s discussing catches our attention, whether it’s his monthly chats with the governor, raising a future Olympian, or turning millet into everyday food. Best of all, he has a knack for finding topics that stay in our minds for days.
Radio Talk Show Host
These incongruous but complementary talking heads—Caplis skews right on most issues, while Silverman more often leans left—provide what’s so often lacking in talk radio: balance. Regardless of their personal affinity or distaste for their guests, these two see eye-to-eye on the need to weed out hypocrisy, ineptitude, and corruption in all forms. It’s why their afternoon drive-time show draws so many would-be Front Range power players as guests, and what makes it a must-listen for anyone who wants to know how our city and state really work.
