Think Out Loud

Culture Club

Pete Springer/OPB

Every week we gather a few local commentators to talk about some of the stories bubbling up at the moment — from arts to sports to cultural trends and more. Our guests tell us what they’re thinking about, and we ignite the conversation.

It’s a casual but thoughtful conversation about the events and subjects that are being discussed in the cubicles, kitchens, and coffee shops of our region.

This week we’ll discuss our biological dependence on germs, the death of Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and the re-birth of Arrested Development.

What’s on your mind this week?


  • Chelsea Cain: Author of Kill You Twice in the Gretchen Lowell series
  • Michael Russell: Restaurant critic for the Oregonian
arts and culture food music television
