In the spirit of the KTOO pledge drive this week, the show guests will all focus on the topic of giving and contributing to the community. Host Adrien Lopez will interview Kirby Day, Director of Shore Operations for Princess Cruises, Pacific Northwest and Alaska, and Bob Janes, owner of Gastineau Guiding.

In the second half of the show, I’ll talk with Mike Walsh, MPA, Ph.D, Vice President of Operations for the Foraker Group, and Cassandra Stazler, Communications Manager for the Rasmuson Foundation (7:30 – 8:00 PM).
