Parenting & The Law | Talking About Dying | Environmental Update

January 19, 2016


  • We talk to University of Oregon law professor Merle Weiner about her idea to create new legal requirements for any couple — married or unmarried — who have or adopt a child.
  • Jenny Sasser and Joel Garavaglia-Maiorano join us to talk about a series of conversations put on by Oregon Humanities around death and dying. What are your hopes for your own death?
  • Then Cassandra Profita with OPB's EarthFix reporting team brings us up to speed about oil-by-rail in Vancouver, snow production at Mt. Hood Meadows, and the local and national coal industry.
