On today's show:
Trackers Earth offers adult & youth outdoor programs. Their co-founder, Molly Deis, joined contributors Tave Fasce Drake and Brian Delaney in the studio for a discussion of nature skills, the connection between literature and learning, and most importantly, how to raise healthy children. Additionally, Tave turned a Trackers Earth Comic into Radio Theatre. Tave and Brian are also the hosts of Peace, Love and Soup on KBOO.
Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly and Rebecca Gilbert founded The Independent Publishing Resource Center, above Chloe's bookstore, Reading Frenzy. The Center is a place for zine creation, letterpress, book binding and printing. Inessa Anderson interviews Brian Tibbets, interim executive director of the IPRC, about its creation, recent expansion, and move to a new location.
- The She-Ra Solution is a brand new installment hosted by Kristin Thieil, inspired by the recent Wonder Woman movie and its themes of powerful women and women figures. The She-Ra Solution showcases the contributions of women of the past and present day. In this first installment, Kristin introduces us to two wonder women - activist Sophie Scholl and journalist Anne Morrissy Merick.
- Local musician Darka Dusty contributes her "Church Of the Get Down" song, written 10 years ago as a fundraiser for Pendarvis Farm (the Pickathon music festival site). In 2008, the city of Happy Valley wanted to put a road right through the farm. Darka gathered over 50 musicians and secretly recorded original songs for an entire record dedicated to the love of Pendarvis Farm.
