  • In his years working as a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Michael German went deep undercover to infiltrate white extremist groups, including militia groups in the Pacific Northwest. He later became an FBI whistle-blower, and is today a nationally regarded expert on counterterrorism. He’s visiting Oregon this week, and joins us to share his experiences.
  • The new documentary from Portland filmmaker Lindsey Grayzel, “The Reluctant Radical,” follows Oregonian Ken Ward in his efforts to make an impact in the fight against climate change. We talk with Grayzel and Ward.
