In the second hour of their November 25, 2020 show, hosts Peter Goodman and Walt Rubel started with their regular Cruces Coronavirus Update, and then discussed the special legislative session in Santa Fe to authorize Covid-19 relief. In the last half-hour, they talked about "contact-tracing" with local resident Jean Berlowitz, who had been doing just that during the last few months. She'll discuss how that works, why we do it, and what she's learned about the virus.
Peter and Walt discussed running and the Diné ways of life with Shaun Martin on the November 25, 2020 edition of Speak, Up, Las Cruces.

John Mylius is a local runner, who lived/worked on the reservation, has written about the subject, and is a mutual friend of Shaun Martin and host Peter Goodman, facilitates the discussion.

That created a false narrative that some commentators on the left have held to throughout his term.
