Join co-hosts Jo Ann Bowman and Dave Mazza every Thursday morning as they bring you informative guests and lively discussions about the issues that are important to you and your community. Every week, Voices from the Edge provides KBOO listeners a place to engage in meaningful talk about racial disparity, government accountability, environmental justice, local and national politics, and other crucial issues of the day. Jo Ann and Dave bring you guests you won’t hear on other talk radio programs and conversation about making Oregon and the nation a better place.
