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 talking about the NBA finals, slashing newpaper staffs, and hair bands.

What stories are you talking about?


  • Ryan White: Music writer at the Oregonian
  • Karol Collymore: Director of Development at the Raphael House
  • Tom Krattenmaker: Portland-based writer specializing in religion in public life and author of the book Onward Christian Athletes.
