Environment | Think Out Loud

Parenting & The Law | Talking About Dying | Environmental Update

Lauren Schneider/Public Insight Network

  • We talk to University of Oregon law professor Merle Weiner about her idea to create new legal requirements for any couple — married or unmarried — who have or adopt a child.
  • Jenny Sasser and Joel Garavaglia-Maiorano join us to talk about a series of conversations put on by Oregon Humanities around death and dying. What are your hopes for your own death?
  • Then Cassandra Profita with OPB’s EarthFix reporting team brings us up to speed about oil-by-rail in Vancouver, snow production at Mt. Hood Meadows, and the local and national coal industry.

If you’d like to comment on any of the topics in this show, please get in touch with us on Facebook or Twitter, send an email to, or call us during the noon hour at 1-888-665-5865.
