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 our conversation includes a New York Magazine article that says we never truly leave high school, Washington’s search for a “pot consultant,” and the cycle of pop culture bringing the 1990s back (not just in Portland).
What’s on your mind this week?
