  • Klamath Falls is home to Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT), but students at the school often leave town once they graduate. A group of young graduates and professors are trying to make the community more attractive to millennials. We talk to Gaucho Collective co-founder Adam Burwell, GO Possibilities co-founder Eric Tipler, OIT assistant professor of sociology Sophie Nathenson and Jeld Wen accountant Melissa Ceron.
  • We talk to people sleeping and working at Portland’s newest homeless shelter, the 24-hour Hansen Shelter at NE Glisan St and NE 122nd Avenue is located in a public building.
