How do you interact with your Mormon or non-Mormon neighbors?

Salt Lake Tribune lifestyle columnist and author Ann Cannon will be among guests discussing the topic at 11 a.m. Tuesday with host Doug Fabrizio on "RadioWest" on KUER 90.1 FM.

If you're unable to tune in on the radio, you can listen to the hour-long program streamed live or download a podcast later.

In addition, RadioWest is rebroadcast daily at 7 p.m.

"Here in Utah, our social lives are sometimes lived on either side of a cultural fence, one dividing Mormons from non-Mormons," according to the program description. "The two cultures tend to intermingle in public and in the workplace. They eat the same fry sauce and pastrami burgers. But whether because of religious or moral values, politics, geography or simply beverage preference, they don't often mix it up at the same social gatherings. Tuesday, we're asking why that's the case."

"RadioWest" welcomes listeners to call in with questions or comments, 801-585-9378.

Cannon's weekly column is rich with insights and anecdotes about living in Utah, making her an ideal participant in this discussion.

New reporter • The Tribune on Tuesday welcomes Matthew "Bubba" Brown, who joins our sports staff as a reporter covering high school sports.

A University of Utah graduate, Brown had been working covering crime and breaking news at the Standard-Examiner in Ogden.
