Join us for this radio travelogue, as Rick tours one of Oregon’s oldest communities – Beaverland -- a magical little town located just a stoned throw away from the bustling metropolis of Portland.
Written and produced by Ken Jones, and featuring Larry, Lyn, Josh, Joe, Noah, Grace, and Rolf.
Larry Bowlden reviewsLove and Terror on the Howling Road to Nowhere by Poe Ballantine, which mixes personal memoir with the mystery of his neighbor's violent death in small-town Nebraska. Read with other recent writing about the American West, Ballantine's book reveals how, in Larry's words, "conventional morality so often teams up with economic exploitation to subjugate people and to strip the land."
Bill Resnick talks with organizer Justin Norton-Kertson about the campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. They discuss the benefits of raising the floor for all workers and preserving social welfare spending for those unable to work, as well as the origins of the movement in Chicago, its victories in SeaTac and Seattle, and the relation between the national and local campaigns, both of which have excellent websites (https://www.15now.org/ and http://www.15nowpdx.org/). They discuss recent actions in Portland and the kinds of solidarity workers can show without risk to their jobs. 20:17 minutes (9.28 MB)
