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.
UPDATE 4/12: Ryan White has been out of town for a few weeks — first to Austin for the SXSW festival, then to New York for the EMP Pop Conference. He made us a Spotify playlist of his favorite acts — featuring The Shins, M. Ward, Bruce Springsteen, and Jack White — and you can listen to it here.
What stories are you talking about?
- Ryan White: Music writer at the Oregonian
- Courtenay Hameister: Host and head writer of Live Wire!
- Eric Fruits: President of economics consulting firm Economics International and adjunct professor of urban economics at Portland State University
