- We check in with senior political reporter Jeff Mapes about Kate Brown’s progress in her first year as governor. We’ll also get updates on Oregon’s current legislative session.
- Then we hear from Teresa Elliott, chief engineer at the Portland Water Bureau. She’s been working to ensure that the pipes that carry the city’s fresh water could survive an earthquake.
- State of Wonder’s Aaron Scott talks with Irene Taylor Brodsky about her documentary “Open Your Eyes.” It follows the life-changing journey of two blind Nepalis as their vision is restored — and it’s playing at the Portland International Film Festival this month. We’ll also hear about her new film, “Beware the Slenderman.”
- Finally, we wrap up the hour with a tribute to Summer Whisman. She was featured as part of Think Out Loud’s “At Home” series in September, and passed away on Saturday.
