What is Think Out Loud?
We sometimes call ourselves the radio show that listens. Or the show that's talking about what the Northwest is talking about. Or maybe: the radio show with a Northwest heart, a global head and internet fingers. The fuller answer is that we're a daily show about politics and global issues, music and sports, books and the environment — anything and everything that can sustain an hour of live, unscripted conversation. And, crucially, we're a web site that feeds into — and off of — that radio conversation.
Think Out Loud was born from the desire to create a space in Oregon and southwestern Washington for a civil, engaged, far-ranging dialogue informed first and foremost by experience. On the air and online, we strive to be a show on which listening to each other is more important than talking at each other.
We want to create a space where entrenched views are challenged, surprises are welcomed, and a globally concerned conversation is expanded by a regional lens.
And we want to hear from you: about show topics and guest suggestions, about articles we should read and sites we should visit. We want to hear about your passions and your concerns, your curiosities and questions. We want to know what we're doing right and, even more importantly, what we can do better.
So: welcome. We hope you'll stay a while, commenting and calling and questioning and listening.
