Voices from the Edge on 12/27/12
Voices from the Edge looks back at 2012
School shootings. Record campaign spending. Department of Justice investigation of Portland police. The past 12 months have been filled with stories that have affected our families, our communities and our nations for good and ill. This week, Jo Ann and Dave will look back at 2012's best and worst moments. Join us with your own stories of what moved you the past year.
A special note from Dave Mazza: This Thursday will be my last time with Voices from the Edge. After eight years co-hosting and producing what I think is one of the best weekly talk shows in town, I've decided its time for a change. Its been a wonderful experience engaging our listeners in meaningful conversations and I've always come away from each program the richer for it. I also feel very fortunate to have worked with people like Jo Ann, program engineer Steve Nassar, audio editor Alicia Olson and news director Kathleen Stephenson on this project. They will continue to bring you Voices from the Edge in the coming years.
Jo Ann Hardesty is a former state legislator, former director of Oregon Action and past board president of Portland Community Media, as well as a long-time leader in the struggle for racial and economic justice. Dave Mazza is a journalist and former editor of The Portland Alliance who has covered and been involved in Portland's civil rights, environmental, labor and peace movements for over 20 years.
