Co-editor Will Tracy on "The Onion Book of Known Knowledge"

Host Chris Andreae speaks with Will Tracy, editor of the popular satire magazine, The Onion, about The Onion Book of Known Knowledge, an entire satirical encyclopedia. It's The Onion's take on everything from Agriculture, Al Qaeda and Muhammed Ali to the Zhou Dynasty and ZZ Top. The Associated Press calls it “one of the titans of fall humor” and Publishers Weekly calls it “consistently funny (and crude, irreverent, tasteless and brilliant).

Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.
