  • OPB’s Amanda Peacher fills us in on rallies held around the country yesterday in honor of LaVoy Finicum.
  • We head out to Beggars Tick, a wildlife-refuge-turned-homeless-encampment in the Lents neighborhood, to try to understand the complicated relationship between housed and unhoused neighbors.
  • We talk to Charise Cheney, the University of Oregon professor heading up a committee looking into renaming buildings on the UO campus. Some students and staff say that too many buildings on campus honor bigoted forefathers.
