• We discuss some of the big stories this week with freelance editor and writer Christy George, Obsidian Opportunity Fund CEO Allen Alley and Lisa Bates, associate professor of urban studies and planning at Portland State University.



  • International adoptees and transracial adoptees can face challenges when navigating questions of race and identity. The Holt International adoption agency in Eugene works with adoptees of color and their white parents to navigate those challenges. We talk with Steve Kalb, the director of post-adoption services for Holt International, and Leah Ferriby, a participant in the programs.
