Episode 43: Truth or Dairy

February 21, 2019

It's a classic tale as old as America itself, the story of a boy and his beloved pet...cow? OK, maybe it's not that common, but then again, Canby's TMK Creamery is not your average farm. Todd Koch joins to tell us about what makes their small, family-run, vertically integrated operation unique, and even lets us try some of their amazing cheeses! Obviously. Did you really think we weren't going to milk this opportunity for all it's worth?

Episode 41: A Podcast to Remember

February 13, 2019

It's Valentine's Day, people, and love is in the air! And perhaps nowhere is that feeling greater than right here, in the city renowned as the most romantic place in the Pacific Northwest — if not the world — Canby, Oregon. We stop by that hotbed of romantic activity, the Canby Adult Center, to chat with local couples who have been together over six decades. They'll tell us what makes a successful marriage and, basically, everything we've been doing wrong.

Episode 38: Take It Steezy

February 4, 2019

A wise man was once asked why he wanted to climb a mountain. He said, "Because it's there." An even wiser man said, "Cause, snowboarding." This episode, we caught up with the really wise kids who form the biggest-ever Canby High School Snowboarding Team this year, over 40 strong! Coach Alexander Cathy tells us why this club has been his passion for over 10 years and teaches us some new words.

Glossary of terms: Here is some snowboarding lingo we learned on this episode. 

Steeze: Style, with ease, get it? "Steeze."

Zeach: To get stuck in fresh powder, aka "pitted." Or it might mean to mess up a trick. Snowboarding lingo is confusing.

Scorp: I think it's when a boarder wipes out, face first, and their legs go over their head, sort of like a scorpion tail. I also think Alexander might have just been messing with me on this one.

There you can find clothes, furniture, art, jewelry, home decor, um, Scrabble tiles? Owner Suzi Joy tells us she’ll sell pretty much anything, as long as it’s colorful, quirky and useful.
