OPB reporters Jeff Mapes and Kristian Foden-Vencil, and Oregonian/OregonLive Capitol reporter Hillary Borrud join host Geoff Norcross to dig into the criticism heaped on Oregon Gov. Kate Brown lately from scathing newspaper editorials and letters from fellow politicians.

Also, how have Oregon leaders reacted to the deadly shooting in Orlando? Plus, a ruling this week allowed a transgender person to legally claim “gender non-binary” rather than checking a “male” or “female” box on a DMV form.
