Top 4 Moments From Think Out Loud This Week

July 31, 2015

This week on OPB's daily talk show, Think Out Loud, a number of our guests told stories filled with passion, drive and even aggression. Here are some of our favorites.

1. Locals activists in kayaks on the Willamette River attempted to block the Royal Dutch Shell's icebreaker, Fennica, from leaving Portland. Then they looked up at the St. John's Bridge.

2. Author and adventurist Rinker Buck traveled the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon pulled by mules. And, true to mule form, they were stubborn. But they're also smart. Maybe smarter doesn't necessarily mean easier?

3. Portland Mayor Charlie Hales recently got back from the Vatican, where he met with Pope Francis and other mayors from around the world. In a room full of leaders, things got competitive.

4. The Americans With Disabilities Act celebrated its 25th anniversary on Monday. But Portland's Disability Program Coordinator wants to do more than just celebrate.
