• Paul Gronke, Political Science professor at Reed College, Elizabeth Hovde, columnist with the Oregonian/Oregon Live, and Naseem Rakha, writer and former radio journalist, join us on the news roundtable to discuss some of the big national and regional stories this week.



  • We get the lowdown from the Portland Tribune’s statehouse reporter Paris Achen on the recently released independent Transportation Audit, which showed some significant problems at the Oregon Department of Transportation.



  • It’s now possible to get marijuana delivered to your house, at least in Bend. We talk to Cannabend, one of the first businesses doing it.
