Protecting Orcas
As the Pacific Northwest's iconic orcas face unprecedented challenges highlighted by several recent deaths, local business and statewide organizations have mobilized to protect the region's native population of killer whales. Southern Resident Killer Whale Recovery and Task Force Co-Chair Stephanie Solien and Makah Tribe Chairman Nate Tyler join Civic Cocktail host Joni Balter to discuss Washington state's action plan for orca recovery and sustainability.

Election Review
U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Seattle, KTTH Radio Host Jason Rantz, and Seattle University professor of political science Marco Lowe will join Civic Cocktail the day after the November midterm elections to discuss the results and what they mean for the Puget Sound region.

Civic Cocktail: Social Justice & Effective Activism

Glib, insightful, outspoken and funny - that's Lindy West, author, columnist at "The Guardian," and contributor to "This American Life." West opens up to host Joni Balter, revealing the influences that shaped her biting wit, her conviction and compassion. They discuss the personal, politics, body image and a much-publicized spat with her boss! Then we hone in on politics with state Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski and Bill Bryant, former port commissioner who challenged Jay Inslee for governor. Each has an interesting take on the new activism in the age of Donald Trump, and some surprising comments on their respective political parties.
