  • Amazon is set to receive more tax breaks from Oregon than any other state. Suzanne Stevens, editor of the Portland Business Journal, discusses Amazon’s growing footprint in Oregon and the possible location of the company’s second headquarters.  
  • We talk to Erious Johnson, who recently stepped down as the director of the civil rights at the Oregon Department of Justice. It’s Johnson’s first one-on-one interview after he settled his civil rights lawsuit against his former employer.
  • The late Jim Pepper was a jazz saxophonist who grew up in Portland. He incorporated his Native American traditions into his jazz compositions, and one of his songs even broke the top 40’s charts. Artists Rep Theater is holding a listening session tomorrow night, led by musician David Ornette Cherry, remembering the life and music of Jim Pepper.
