Host Geoff Norcross talks regional politics with OPB political analyst Bill Lunch, senior political reporter Jeff Mapes and reporter Amelia Templeton. We look into the response from Oregon’s political leaders to the recent oil train derailment in Mosier. We also hear how the Oregon business community is responding to what could be a major corporate tax increase and get acquainted with Oregon’s delegates to the Republican National Convention next month.

Our “That’s So Oregon” segment includes the most popular question Oregonians ask Google and Portland’s French doppelganger city.
