Every week we gather a few local commentators to talk about some of the stories of the week — from the arts to sports to politics and more. Our guests tell us what they’re thinking about and we ignite the conversation.
The idea is to get a casual, but thoughtful, conversation going about the events and subjects that are being discussed in the cubicles, kitchens, and coffee shops of our region.
This week we’re talking about Lady Gaga’s new focus on body image, Sweeney Todd at Portland Center Stage, impressions of the Feast Festival and what it might have to say about coolness and exclusivity in Portland.
What’s on your mind this week?
