  • That’s Debatable: The Homelessness Crisis is Killing Seattle

    On any given night there are more than 12,000 people experiencing homelessness in King County. The homelessness crisis is a complicated issue that evokes strong emotions from people across the region. There are a wide range of opinions on how to best tackle the issue, how much money should be spent and whether public dollars are being spent wisely. Everyone is impacted by the homelessness crisis in some way. Some argue that it’s killing our city – bringing us into a state of decline. Others argue that homelessness is merely a symptom of much larger problem.

    Join KUOW at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute on Tuesday, October 29 for the latest event in our That’s Debatable series. At this Oxford-style debate, a panel of smart Seattleites will square off on the proposition, “The Homelessness Crisis is Killing Seattle.”

  • BTSW Live: Who gets to be the hero and why it matters

    There's no shortage of hero stories in our books, on TV, and in movies. And for a long time, most of our heroes, from flawed to super, had something in common: they were either white dudes or femme fatales. (Or in Superman's case, a space alien who passed as a white dude.) But wait! That doesn't mean we're doomed to have the same kinds of stories or the same kinds of heroes forever. Join Eula Scott Bynoe and Jeannie Yandel, hosts of KUOW’s Battle Tactics For Your Sexist Workplace podcast, for a fascinating, funny conversation about who gets to be the hero and why it matters. Eula and Jeannie will welcome real life superheroes, award-winning novelist and comic book writer G. Willow Wilson and Salon.com TV critic Melanie McFarland.
