Dan sorts through the financial mumbo jumbo and hocus pocus that has shaken the world's economy for the past year and explores local initiatives that may help put the economy together, one community at a time.
We're also joined by Kari Koch with the Rural Organizing Project. Kari tells us about ROP's current organizing initiative: creating Living Room Conversations on the Economic Collapse & Bringing our Money Home.
Dan Leahy and Kari Koch will be part of a Community forum on Building a Fair Economy on Tuesday June 9th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Corvallis Public Library, 6th AND Monroe, in Corvallis.
Sara and Beth talk with Linda Ginenthal of PDOT and Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder about Sunday Parkways, three events this summer that will transform over 7 miles of neighborhood streets into temporary parks, so we can enjoy walking, bicycling, roller blading and dancing in the street - without having to watch out for cars!

Portland’s Imago Theatre has a history of staging unusual and original work: stories of serial killer children, operas without words and spectacles of animals and clowns. Their new production, Simple People, opened last week and KBOO’s Frank Reynolds dropped in to see what audiences can expect from their latest.
