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 autonomous cars, the next iPhone, and the SNAP challenge

What’s on your mind this week?


  • Daniel Wilson: Author of the science fiction novels “Amped” and “Robopocalypse”
  • Eric Fruits: President of economics consulting firm Economics International and adjunct professor of urban economics at Portland State University
  • Nancy Rommelmann: Portland-based freelance writer and blogger
