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.

Listen Up! Northwest program 55 offers discussions about the meaning of whiteness as a race. (Callie Shanafelt, KBCS, Seattle)

What is cultural appropriation in contrast to cultural sharing? A discussion on how cultural lines can be crossed when one takes on artifacts of another culture. (Theryn Kigvamasudvashti, KBCS, Seattle)

There are serious gaps in proficiency and success between students of color and white students. We feature an interview of two people who are trying to close this gap through cultural work with white teachers (Esther "Little Dove" John, KBCS, Seattle)
