OPB education reporter Rob Manning and Oregonian/OregonLive political reporter Hillary Borrud join host Geoff Norcross. This week, we talk about why some Oregon Republicans are distancing themselves from Donald Trump. We dig into the dysfunctional internal politics at Portland Public Schools and hear about a bipartisan effort among Oregon lawmakers to push for changes to marijuana policies at the federal level.

And of course our “That’s So Oregon” segment has a little fun at our state’s expense, highlighting some of the quintessential Oregon stories of the week.
