In the summer of 2021, a couple from Livingston, Montana were preparing for a wilderness float trip in Idaho. Before heading to the river and leaving cell service behind, they stocked up on supplies at a local outdoor gear shop. What happened there was caught on video and viewed millions of times. It ignited a political firestorm across the country. That conflict just kept spiraling, providing one example of how today’s political disagreements can have far-flung consequences.

This week, Endless Thread presents an episode of Shared State, a podcast from the Montana Free Press, Montana Public Radio and Yellowstone Public Radio.
