Kitchen Table Conversations is a spontaneous, Live talk radio program focused on discussing important current events and how they are impacting our community and all of us individually. This is not a new concept! I, Mary Postlethwaite, started Kitchen Table Conversation as a series on Bread and Roses, a feminist public affairs show that airs on the KBOO airwaves every Friday at 6:00PM. I am a real, honest, authentic person who loves to connect on a human level with people because I believe everyone has a story to tell. Kitchen Table Conversations has become a way for the KBOO audience to know the Bread and Roses collective members on a more personal level and realize we are real people, just like them! What an honor it would be to expend Kitchen Table Conversations to a monthly show of its own that fosters casual conversations amongst regular people, that models positivity, inclusion, open-minded and realness and that explores grassroots efforts to change our community for the better, one life at a time!
Kitchen Table Conversations has also been and will continue to be a forum for our youth. What is going on with our young people, especially those who live in my community in North Portland is hugely important to me and this is why I invite youth to share their thoughts, opinions and ideas with our KBOO audience, as well as their art and talents on my show often. I believe that some of the best talent goes unheard and unseen and so I feature young artists on the shows who I believe have a huge potential to blow up in the future.
Kitchen Table Conversations is solution oriented show that is intended to be informative, real and fun!
