Where do you go to find out what is happening in the world of arts and culture in Oregon? To hear creative people talk about their work: why they create and how they make it? To find out what people choose to consume to keep themselves artistically engaged?
Saturdays at noon the place to go is OPB Radio’s new show: State of Wonder.
In this premiere episode you’ll hear host April Baer and vice president of awesome Ifanyi Bell talk about the following things. You can listen to the whole show, or zip to the time below to catch the part you’re most interested in:
