Historian Phil Roberts at the University of Wyoming recently published a book called Cody’s Cave, which tells the story of a vast set of caverns near Cody. The cave was once a national monument but was then turned over to local control, and Roberts argues that that was a grave mistake, because the site is now just a hole in the ground, off limits to the public. Roberts joined Wyoming Public Radio’s Willow Belden to talk about the cave and its demise.
