We bring you more of our favorite Weekday guests this hour as our spring membership drive rolls on. Earlier this year we spoke with the team behind Seattle sketch comedy show, The 206. We listen back to our conversation with Almost Live! alums John Keister and Pat Cashman and 206-er Chris Cashman. The show premiered on KING 5 in January and returns from a brief hiatus later this month.
Our spring membership drive continues with two of our favorite recent interviews. First, we listen back to our conversation with actor and comedian David Alan Grier. He joined us in the studio to talk about his 30-year career in entertainment, from the theater to television's "In Living Color" to Broadway. Then, we revisit our talk with restaurateur Eddie Huang about food, hip-hop and the experience of growing up a first-generation immigrant in the US.
As spring edges out winter and previously bare tree limbs are suddenly effusive with blossoms, there's a sense that almost anything -- or anyone -- deserves a second chance. In her poem "A Quiet," poet Marjorie Manwaring meditates on alternative endings and the possibility of redemption.
Northwest novelist Jonathan Evison talks about how he buried his first three novels before achieving his first success. Ross Reynolds talks with Evison about that and his most recent book, "The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving."
