All of Montana knows that Butte is a big deal. Now readers of 'The New Yorker' know too.

"'Richest Hill,' a new podcast from Montana Public Radio, made me care intensely about the former copper-mining boomtown of Butte, Montana—and urgently want to understand it better. Reported and written by Nora Saks and edited and produced by Nick Mott and Eric Whitney, “Richest Hill” has a mood of straightforward friendliness, but it’s also full of surprises ... It’s no small feat to tell an enjoyable story about a Superfund site, but, so far, 'Richest Hill' pulls it off."
