  • Portland students are organizing a walkout calling on government officials to take action on climate change. Organizer Jaden Winn tells us what he hopes the march accomplishes. And Portland Public Schools Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero tells us about the district’s approach to student participation in the climate strike.



  • Paul Stamets has been studying mushrooms for most of his life. Even though he doesn’t have a scientific degree, Stamets is one of the most well-known advocates for the benefits and value of fungi. Stamets is featured in a new film called “Fantastic Fungi,” which will be opening next weekend at Cinema 21. He will be speaking Friday night at Newmark Theater.
