  • We talk with Portland Public Schools board member Mike Rosen about the issue of lead in the drinking water as well as radon in classrooms
  • Every two and a half minutes, a football field-sized parcel of outdoor space is logged, turned into a highway, or becomes urban sprawl. That’s according to the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress. We’ll talk to Nicole Gentile, the project leader for mapping the Disappearing West.
  • We talk to the founder of Drip Ice Cream, a marijuana-infused ice cream wholesaler in Portland, about how the new legal status for recreational edibles is driving demand.
  • Comedian Amy Miller, named Portland’s funniest person in 2015, tells us about leaving Portland, and what the New York and L.A. comedy scenes have to offer.
