News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

In June, 2006, Stephanie Potter spoke with Morgan Brent about developing a way of life devoted to the cultivation of our humanness in conscious, respectful, and free flowing dialogue with the natural world. According to Brent, one so integrated into the sylvan cosmos, the society of Nature, is known as a sylvapolitan. Brent teaches that the sylvapolitan is educated via self-transformation (knowing something by becoming it), accultured into a spiritual ecology and its manifestations in natural ecosystems, and pro-active in the Program of spiritual evolution.  Morgan Brent is founder of Tribes of Creation and leads workshops throughout the Northwest.
