  • Zach Urness with the Statesman Journal/USA Today joins us to talk about the fish passage improvements proposed for Detroit Dam in the next few years. Those plans would drain the lake for up to two years and have major impacts on recreation and tourism in the Detroit Lake area.
  • Both Portland and Seattle tout themselves as green cities. But how much can a city actually do to reduce carbon emissions? KUOW reporter John Ryan has looked at Seattle’s successes and failures. And Susan Anderson from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, and Michael Armstrong of City Scale tell us about Portland’s efforts.
  • Prince Gomolvilas’ play, “The Brothers Paranormal,” is having a staged reading in Portland before its world premiere in New York City. Dmae Roberts, Executive Producer of MediaRites and Theatre Diaspora — Oregon’s only professional Asian-American/Pacific Islander theatre company — brought Gomolvilas’ work to Portland as part of an effort tell more diverse, multicultural stories on stage.
