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 we’re discussing movie theater etiquette, Ronald Reagan’s blood, Gossip’s new album and Etan Patz, the original missing boy from the milk carton.

What stories are you talking about?


  • Marty Smith: Willamette Week’s Dr. Know
  • Chelsea Cain: Author of the Gretchen Lowell series and other books
  • Aaron Scott: Arts and culture editor at Portland Monthly Magazine
