  • Lynn Fitch presents another storytelling installment: What's Next? Venturing into the Great Wide Open.
  • Ten Minutes With Darka: This month, Darka's guest is Carl Wolfson, a comedian, radio host, author and activist.  He was a mainstay on Portland's progressive talk radio, hosting "Carl in the Morning".  
  • The She-Ra Solution is a monthly biography of women past and present.  Its title is inspired by Maria Teresa Hart's article, "She Ra and the Fight Against the Token Girl", published by The Atlantic.  In today's segment, Kristin talks about two Marys: Mary Turner and Mary Thomas, and their rebellions, both deeply personal and highly political against racists systems.
  • Tave Fasce Drake, contributing producer, also has a podcast called Peace, Love, and Soup with co-host Brian Delaney.  Today, they share an interview with native Portlander, Renee Watson, a multi-award winning author now living in New York.  Renee recently celebrated the one year anniversary of "I,Too Arts Collective" that is committed to nurturing voices from underrepresented communities in the creative arts.  Tave, Brian, and Renee talk about the sharing your voice, the importance of libraries, and the universal of food and community.
  • Debra Giannini returns with Sound Bite.  On today's segment, she shares a song by Annie Gallop.
