We sometimes call ourselves the radio show that listens. Or the show that's talking about what the Northwest is talking about. Or maybe: the radio show with a Northwest heart, a global head and internet fingers. The fuller answer is that we're a daily show about politics and global issues, music and sports, books and the environment — anything and everything that can sustain an hour of live, unscripted conversation. And, crucially, we're a web site that feeds into — and off of — that radio conversation.
