Community dialogue is important. At 8am every Thursday Voices from the Edge lends a KBOO microphone to informed guests you might not hear anywhere else. With an hour to invest, the call-in format engages listeners in meaningful conversations about crucial issues like racial disparity, government accountability, environmental justice and politics on local, state and national levels. Join lively discussions about concerns that are important to you and our community. Together we’ll make Oregon and our nation a better place for a larger number of those living here.

2nd Monday host of Labor Radio
I'm an anti-imperialist, anarcho-socialist transgender sort of gal. PressWatch began on KAZI Austin in 1986, as an attempt to stoke the fires of revolution with counterpropaganda and "the news you're not supposed to know." Expect a radical analysis, and information culled from a vast array of sources, from Radio Havana to the Polish press-- or even interviews with notables like Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn, Judi Bari, Dr. Niman, and Michio Kaku--and introspection from my own life experiences.

Left the station when the culture became too hostile. Listened to volunteers repeating the "whisper campaign" of lies and slander to run off anyone who called for Staff to be accountable.
Watching as all of my dire warnings are coming true and the station's "entrenched clubhouse" brings it all down.
