Host Barbara Bernstein (The Media Project) talks with Richard Charter, with Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, about the recent push for lifting moratoriums on off-shore oil drilling, why the idea seems to be winning public support, and what is wrong with the plan.
"Is there a war on wheels? Is there any difference between a "crash" and an "accident?" The August KBOO Bike Show will address recent media coverage of bike-related issues in Portland. Guests Amy Ruiz, Portland Mercury News Editor, and Jonathan Maus join hosts Ayleen Crotty and Carl Larson to analyze recent incidents, the resulting media coverage, and its influence on public perceptions. Portland's streets are famously friendly to bicyclists. Can the same be said about Portland's news sources?"
Listeners are welcome to call in: (503) 231-8187 Be prepared to bring a constructive point or question to the conversation.

Marianne Barisonek speaks with Doug Fine, author of Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living. In an attempt to reduce his carbon footprint, Fine moves to a remote ranch in New Mexico,
where he brazenly vows to grow his own food, use sunlight to power his world,
and drive on restaurant grease. Never mind that he’s never raised so much as a
chicken or a bean. Or that he has no mechanical or electrical skills.
