On the Road with America's Poor: An Interview with Kath Weston

How far can you get on two tacos, one Dr. Pepper, and a little bit of conversation? What happens when you're broke and you need to get to a new job, an ailing parent, a powwow, college, or a funeral on the other side of the country? And after decades of globalization, what kind of America will you glimpse through the window on your way? This week on Voices from the Edge, Dave Mazza talks with Kath Weston, author of Traveling Light: On the Road with America's Poor.

Confronting Peak Oil: Building a Sustainable Future

Confronting Peak Oil: Building a Sustainable Future

As we approach the end of the age of oil, and the reality of the climate
crisis sinks in, more and more people are beginning to wake up to the fact
that we need to change our ways, and begin building sustainable energy
alternatives.  We'll spend the day exploring those alternatives - people and
projects who are working for change, places that have reduced their carbon
footprint, a national agenda for addressing the crisis, and local
initiatives in the Portland area.

Prostitution is flourishing in the Rose City. Some Portlanders blame it on city hall's decision to let the prostitution exclusion zones lapse. They want the zones back and more efforts made to put prostitutes in jail. Other city residents say that rehabilitation, not more police, is the answer. In the meantime, Mayor Tom Potter has announed a new initiative to fight prostitution on 82nd Ave. through enhanced enforcement and prosecution combined with treatment options. How should we deal with prostitution in our city? Do we really understand the problem of prostitution?
