Think Out Loud

Culture Club

Pete Springer/OPB

Every week we gather a few local commentators to talk about some of the stories of the week — from the arts to sports to politics and more. Our guests tell us what they’re thinking about and we ignite the conversation.

The idea is to get a casual, but thoughtful, conversation going about the events and subjects that are being discussed in the cubicles, kitchens, and coffee shops of our region.

This week we’re talking about how TV affects your self-esteem, the time-wasting digital divide, and chefs tackling cuisines outside their ethnic backgrounds.

What stories are you talking about?


  • Andi Zeisler: Editorial and Creative director at Bitch Media
  • Chelsea Cain: Author of the Gretchen Lowell series and other books
  • Michael Russell: Restaurant critic for The Oregonian
