In this week’s episode of East Idaho Newsmakers, the Gilberts sit down with Nate Eaton in their first joint interview since Clark’s new assignment was announced.

They speak about higher education, their time living in east Idaho, how they balance life with eight kids and what they hope their legacy will be.
