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 robot cheetahs (among other robotic animals), the last telegram ever to be sent and why we love hopeless sports teams.

What’s on your mind this week?
