May 24, 2018
  • A round-up of the week's news.
  • Studying the carcinogenic effects of food.
  • A visit to the box office for this summer's blockbusters.

Gemma Gaudette discusses the week's events with a roundtable of Idaho journalists including Kimberlee Kruesi of the Associated Press-Idaho and Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News.

- Boise State University's Owen McDougal has been researching how acralymides develop in cooked foods.  Acralymides can have carcinogenic effects on the human body and in California, a judge recently ruled coffee growers need to label the acralymide content of their beans. Idaho Matters will talk with McDougal about his work on acralymides and potatoes. 

- The theaters will be filled with action movies this summer - 'Solo,' 'Deadpool 2,' 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' and 'Oceans 8' will keep the lucrative franchises alive for another year and on Friday's Idaho Matters we'll talk with Boise Weekly film critic George Prentice about which films to pick and which should get a pass.
