If you’re a regular listener you may have noticed that we’re slipping a rebroadcast or two into our schedule this month. In fact it is one per week for five weeks during the heat of summer. The reason we’re doing this is to allow Think Out Loud producers and hosts some time to work on big projects and series that you’ll start to hear on the air (or read on the site) this fall.
This week Julie Sabatier, our associate producer, is out. She’s hitting the streets in Portland, Bend and Blachly (northwest of Eugene) to get a better understanding of Oregon’s homeless population. She’s gathering information to launch a series on homelessness this fall. After all, it was recently reported that Oregon leads the nation in homelessness. Quite a startling statistic.
In honor of this upcoming series, we’re rebroadcasting a powerful (we thought) conversation from a couple months ago about hunger. In case you missed it, this is your chance to hear a really frank discussion about what it’s like when you don’t know where your next meal is coming from.
Have you ever been in this sitation? Do you ever wonder where your food is coming from? Have you been, or known someone who has been, hungry and even perhaps homeless? Share your comments here and, of course, feel free to look back on the lively discussion we had when this show first aired.
