Think Out Loud

Culture Club

Pete Springer/OPB

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.

This week our conversation includes the upcoming Grammy Award Ceremony, a canceled blackface performance at a North Portland gay bar, and highlights from college football’s National Signing Day.

What’s on your mind this week?
