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 we’re discussing chicken retirement, hyper-local honey — are bees the new chickens? — and the John Edwards trial.

What stories are you talking about?


  • Aaron Scott: Arts and culture editor at Portland Monthly Magazine
  • Chelsea Cain: Author of the Gretchen Lowell series and other books
  • Eric Fruits: President of economics consulting firm Economics International and adjunct professor of urban economics at Portland State University

Note: This segment did not air live because we decided to keep the Radiolab guys for the hour, but we recorded it right after the show.
