Thursday, Christine Durham is our guest. She’s just retired from the Utah Supreme Court after nearly 40 years on the bench. Durham has been a trailblazer as the first woman to serve on the court, with 10 years as Chief Justice. But it’s not just women that have felt her impact.

We’ll talk about Justice Durham’s life and the experiences that gave her perspective as a judge.
