If you’re a person who likes to use part of your weekend to catch up on the news or read articles you had no time for during the week, let me offer a few suggestions:

Have Affordable Care Act questions? We have answers

Here’s a comprehensive guide to the ACA and an update on the status of its implementation in Utah. This guide also includes a recording of an Oct. 9 town hall meeting with Utah experts at the Salt Lake City Main Library that aired on KCPW 88.5/105.3 FM, plus archived video from three TribTalk chats on the topic.

What’s Sen. Mike Lee up to? He’s just being Mike Lee

Tribune Washington correspondents Matt Canham and Thomas Burr offer a detailed look at Sen. Mike Lee’s short tenure in the Senate to lend context to his controversial attempt to remake the Republican Party from within. The package includes this interactive time line of defining moments in Lee’s career so far and an archived video from a TribTalk chat Jennifer Napier-Pearce moderated with Canham, Burr, former Lee chief of staff Spencer Stokes and blogger and former Utah lawmaker Holly Richardson.

Art versus what its makers do and say

The film version of Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 science fiction novel "Ender’s Game" premiered Friday, and some Card critics used the film’s debut to resurrect controversy about the devout Mormon author’s anti-gays views.

In addition to his review of "Ender’s Game," critic Sean P. Means examines what happens when fans love art but don’t necessarily love its creator. He also talks about the film and Card on TribTalk with moderator Jennifer Napier-Pearce; Robert Maxwell, curator of the Orson Scott Card Collection at Brigham Young University; and Eric Howard, designer of the new BYU exhibit "Card’s Game."

Recapping the week in Utah news

Tune in to KCPW 88.5/105.3 FM at 8 a.m. Sunday or download a podcast of the new "Utah Week in Review" show produced by The Tribune and hosted by Napier-Pearce. Panelists on this week’s program, which originally aired at 9 a.m. Friday, include columnist Paul Rolly, food writer Kathy Stephenson and Washington correspondent Matt Canham talking about immigration reform, missing records in the investigation into Utah Attorney General John Swallow, new guidelines for Utah restaurants serving alcohol and more.
