PIE #2.7. Featuring the people who make storytelling the foundation for their incredible work, including artist Marita Dinguis, the Richard Hugo House and Tacoma's Drunken Telegraph. Includes an history lesson about Seattle's first local TV broadcast, an animated film short from the Vancouver Film School and a Bumbershoot performance by rapper Dave B.

About PIE. Like any TV show, PIE will bring you things. Things that matter to our audience like art, music, history and the innovative spirit that makes our corner of the world a fascinatingly dynamic place.

In return, we ask that you bring us things too. We're looking for story ideas, images, videos... pretty much anything that reflects the heritage of the area between Vancouver, WA to Vancouver, BC, and from Aberdeen to Alberta, in all its glory, as quirky as it may be.

PIE is best when it's shared. Connect with us on Twitter with the #watchPIE hashtag, on our tumblr blog, or by sending an email to pie@KCTS9.org.
