My name is Emiline Ostlind, I’m from Big Horn Wyoming. I grew up in Wyoming but I’ve lived out of state a couple of times. I spent a little over a year in Washington D.C. and when I lived there I would stream Wyoming Public Radio online because I loved hearing the weather in Pinedale, and just little snippets of information, and underwriting statements from businesses I recognized.
