  • Perry Chocktoot is the Culture and Heritage Director for the Klamath Tribes. We play the longer version of the interview that was part of our On The Road show in Southern Oregon last summer. You can watch Oregon Experience’s documentary “Broken Treaties” here.
  •  Lindy West doesn’t like euphemisms. Call her fat. Call her a feminist. Call her outspoken. Call her “Shrill,” the title of her book, which was just released in paperback. We’ll listen back to our interview with her from last summer.
