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 talking about a TV anchor’s response to criticism about her weight, whether we should listen to advice to “follow your passion,” and the place of politics on Facebook.

What’s on your mind this week?
