  • Senator Ron Wyden talks to the crowd at his town hall in Sisters Monday, Feb. 20. Wyden visited the Source Weekly on Wednesday.
Walking into the conference room at the Source Weekly in Bend, one of the first things people tend to notice is the kombucha on tap.

It was the same when Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) visited on Feb. 22, 2017. We offered him some, but on this day the Senator was drinking just water. But he did take that opportunity to begin our talk with him by touching on a proposed bill to change the antiquated laws surrounding kombucha—that fermented beverage that gets so much love here in Central Oregon.

Listen on to hear more about kombucha, the marijuana industry, the role of the media, the future of Medicare and the Democratic party, and more.

Advice Goddess, Amy Alkon — Science Meets Chinese Philosophy

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2017 at 7:58 PM



On tonight’s show, science gets together with ancient Chinese philosophy, and it likes what it finds. 

Dr. Edward Slingerland, an internationally renowned Chinese philosophy expert, draws on both cutting-edge science and ancient Chinese strategies to show how our modern Western approach of striving our guts out doesn’t seem to lead to success or happiness.

In fact, he observes, it seems that getting practiced enough in something that it comes naturally is the way to avoid forcing things in the moment (which is actually counterproductive to succeeding).

Dr. Slingerland will talk about this, how achieving that sort of effortlessness is the way to personal charisma, and much more on tonight’s show. His book he’ll be discussing is “Trying Not To Try: The Art And Science of Spontaneity.” Join us and see how we can better our work, relationships, and lives — if we can just get out of our own way.

Amy has guests each Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

Bend's Backyard Dump

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2017 at 7:34 AM

For years, China Hat road which leads into the Deschutes National Forest has been a dumping ground.  It's not uncommon to find abandoned vehicles, used washers and driers, bed springs, mattresses, computer screens and TV's dumped in the woods off China Hat.  Not only is it an illegal dumping ground, but the area is used heavily by sport shooters.  Spent shells are seen everywhere.

In 2005, a Forest Service worker was wounded in the thigh by a stray bullet.  While the location where the bullet was fired was found, the shooter has never been found.

This podcast sheds light on this on-going problem in Bend's backyard.
