  • There are two protests in Burns today — each taking different sides. We’ll get an update from OPB’s Amanda Peacher.


  • We talk with OPB’s capitol correspondent Chris Lehman about what to expect from the short legislative session in Oregon that starts today.
  • Carl Wolfson joins us to talk  about the end of his long-running progressive talk show, about the need for community stations like XRAY FM, and what he calls a toxic political climate.


  • The legislature set up a panel to propose loosening restrictions on medical cannabis research. We’ll talk to Dr. Robert Hitzemann, a member of that panel.
