West Obsessed is a new audio series, where the journalists of High Country News discuss the stories and issues that make the American West such an interesting, unique place.  In the latest episode, editors Brian Calvert and Tay Wiles discuss the Malheur Wildlife Refuge occupation in Oregon with photographer Brooke Warren, who spent a few days with the occupiers as they set up in the refuge.
