Making the case to recall Mayor Sam Adams

program date: 
Thu, 09/03/2009

Volunteers with the campaign to recall Mayor Sam Adams have a little over a month left to collect the 32,183 valid signatures from Portland voters needed to force the Portland mayor to resign or face a special recall election. Campaign organizers have told the press it will be close but support is growing. The campaign - sparked by revelations by Adams that he had lied about his relationship with one of his interns - has brought together strange political bedfellows - from former Adams supporters to extreme conservatives - as well as made Portlanders reflect on how we should judge our elected officials.

Jo Ann and Dave talk with campaign organizer Jasun Wurster about the campaign's chances of success and who has joined the ranks of Portlanders who think the mayor must go. Do you think the mayor's actions warrant his removal? Does focusing on recalling the mayor prevent Portlanders from addressing bigger problems facing our city?

Class and Gender

program date: 
Mon, 08/17/2009

This episode examines the issues of class and gender from some different perspectives.  In 2009, have women acheived equality?  In 2008, Hillary Clinton was a candidate for President of the United States and Sarah Palin was a VP nominee.  Numbers of women CEO's of major corporations are increasing.  Nancy Pelosi serves as the Speaker of the House in Congress and just recently, Sonia Sotomayor was appointed to the U.S. Supreme court.

Women may have come a long way, but have women arrived in all segments of our society?  Where are we as a society?

What would you do if your son insisted on wearing a dress to school?  What if your baby girl insisted she was a boy?  It seems transgender children are coming out earlier and earlier, but the situation raises endless questions: is their cross-gender identification is just a phase?  How can parents support gender identity?  How young is “too young” to transition from one gender to another? At what point should parents seek medical intervention?  What are the ramifications of suppressing or countering the biological changes inherent in puberty?  Should surgery even be considered when dealing with children?  Where can trans-identified youth go to get medical assistance?
