1. Underground Owls
Burrowing owls are some of the Northwest's most charismatic characters. But the large–eyed birds are under stress from development and farming practices. We follow a group of volunteers who are mapping out some of the last places in Washington where the birds still thrive. Anna King reports.

2. Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix didn't make it big until after he left Seattle. But people still debate about the influence Jimi took away from the local music scene. Peter Blecha is the author of Music in Washington: Seattle and Beyond. He's here today to make a case for the early Hendrix recordings — songs that give a glimpse of a legend in the making.

3. New Atheists
The New Atheists like Christopher Hitchens say religion poisons everything. But our guest today, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Christopher Hedges says the New Atheists are preaching a form of fundamentalism as dangerous as religious fundamentalism. So who is right? Hosted by Ross Reynolds.

4. Coming to Jesus and Coming Out
There's a moment at a Southern Baptist tent revival when people are asked to come to the front of the congregation and testify their faith in God. This is probably not the best place to come out of the closet. But Kimberly Brandom sees a parallel in coming to Jesus and coming out. She's a local filmmaker, and her new documentary Testimony tells the stories of men and women who did both. She had her own experiences with testifying to God and coming out. Her first was when she was four years old.
