A Couple of Things Before I Hit The Road

If you have a television that's capable of this, tune into Oregon Public Broadcasting and set your audio to the simulcast chanel. You'll hear me read the news, weather, and some opinion pieces in a show produced by local actor Duane Hanson. It's a service of OPB for visually impared people who can't read the newspaper, and it happens on the second audio chanel every Wednesday from 6 - 8.
