Listen Up! Northwest is a collaboratively produced radio magazine featuring stories of communities in action throughout the Northwest. Each broadcast highlights the work of skilled community radio producers and artists from our region, including Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

In Listen Up Northwest program 47, we talk taxes, interviewing an anonymous war resister, one of many refusing to fund militarism with their tax dollars. (Sue Supriano, Stepping Out of Babylon, Eugene, OR). Also: a couple of Washington organizations are saying that wealthy corporations arenât paying their fair share of taxes. Find out what the loopholes are. (David Griffith, KBCS, Seattle). Finally, commentary from Geov Parrish (KBCS) on why we pay federal taxes.
