Perry worked in the Department of Interior under Ronald Reagan and then headed up the efforts of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, a non-profit law firm that defends property rights in the American West. Pendley was appointed to deputy director by President Trump and then became acting director of the Bureau of Land Management in 2019.

Perry and Paul discuss the BLM and its importance in New Mexico, how political shifts have drastic impacts on land management techniques, and the radical politics of people in high places at BLM under the Biden Administration.
