The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/06/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/06/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe talks with a group of bike-based entrepreneurs about pedaling one’s goods on the street.

Sol Pops, SoupCycle and B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery are all Portland-based small businesses driven by a common factor: bicycles. But what’s it like to depend on human-powered transportation for your livelihood? It’s a sustainable, intimate and decidedly local form of commerce, sure, but one imagines that Januaries are likely to be extra long.

Noah Cable, Aaron Harmon and Danielle Koppel of Sol Pops, along with Jed Lazar of SoupCycle and Franklin Jones of B-Line, join Abe in studio to discuss doing business from atop a bicycle.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/22/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.

Coffee, Tea and VOE: A talk with Coffee Party PDX's Kristy Alberty and Common Cause Oregon's Nate Gulley

The Tea Party has captured the imagination of America's media industry if not the American people, lending it clout that far surpasses its numbers. Tea Party pressure has sent nervous Republican incumbents like Senator John McCain even more to the right. The Tea Party, however, remains a movement remains at heart a movement of negation: no taxes, no immigrants, no federal government. With their "Don't Tread on Me" flags and Obama-Hitler anologies, Tea Party activists have helped accelerate the decline of civil political discourse.
