As part of our "Swap Talk" series, we're partnering with Oregon Public Broadcasting, based in Portland, to hear viewpoints and perspectives from beyond the Bay Area. In the first half hour, we'll talk about how President Trump's policies are affecting agriculture and migrant labor in both Oregon and California. Then in the second half, we dig into why the West Coast is so different from the rest of the United States. KQED's Mina Kim and OPB's Dave Miller co-host this special episode and we invite listeners from both regions to join the conversation.
