  • Jay’s a teenage guy with a sarcastic sense of humor and a driver’s license, about to start his senior year at a Vancouver, Washington, area high school. He’s also transgender and he invited The Oregonian reporter Casey Parks into his life to chronicle the years’ long process of his transition. We speak with them both about Jay’s story upon the release of Casey’s three-part series, “About a Boy.”
  • If bigfoot exists, his habitat may be shrinking. Butterfly scientist Robert Michael Pyle wrote “Where Bigfoot Walks” 20 years ago. He has just re-released the book with updated information about the environment that would be home to the hairy beast, if it exists at all.
