A new farmer’s market will open in Portland this weekend.  Portland is one of the nation’s leaders in farmer’s markets, with over a dozen weekly markets just within the city itself.
These markets allow local residents to buy their food from nearby farmers, and help small farms survive in an age of agribusiness.
Ann Forstafel is with the Portland Farmers Market, which oversees most of the markets in Portland.

Air date:

Host Crystal Leighty interviews Daniel Wolff, author of "How Lincoln Learned to Read," which takes a look at twelve Americans -- from Ben Franklin through Elvis Presley -- and the educations that made them. How do we learn what we need to know? What does the education of a Paiute woman in western Nevada have to do with Rachel Carson's childhood? What do we mean by a "good education" and who gets one? In a starred review, Kirkus called it: "A riveting, original examination of education inside and outside the classroom."

The Ubu Hour adapts Albert Camus's THE PLAGUE just in time for the swine flu pandemic... Actually we ran a longer version of this show 3 years ago, when people were worried about avian flu and how the Bush administration would react to it.  So we took that 1 hour show, chopped out all the Bush parts, added in a page of dialog about swine flu, and voila! A new Ubu episode...
