There are a number of public affairs forums across the state, dozens, maybe hundreds, if you include all the “speaker” series offered by local nonprofits, libraries, political, and educational and religious organizations. Check your local news and events sources to find out what is happening in your community. There are sometimes multiple ways to listen to these, so check out their websites.
Here are three well known ones in Washington, Marion, and Multnomah Counties:
