Last month, we did a special live broadcast from Seattle's Town Hall. In case you missed it, we're re–airing part of that show today. Award–winning author Sherman Alexie joined us for a round of "Sherman Has Opinions," where he expounds on anything the audience asks him. All topics were on the table. Rachel Flotard of Visqueen was our musical guest, along with Cristina Bautista on bass and Barb Hunter on cello. "Weekday" will broadcast live from Town Hall again on Friday, August 12.
