Working For Amazon In Allentown: may have gotten its start in Seattle, but the company now operates from a multitude of cities. One of the company's warehouses is in Allentown, Pennsylvania. According to a recent investigative report, many employees are frustrated with the working conditions.

NW Medical School Doctors Paid By Drug Companies: Across the Northwest, thousands of physicians are receiving payments from drug makers. Some of that money is for drug research. Other payments are for a meal or a trip to a conference. But in many cases, doctors are getting paid to give talks to other medical providers on behalf of a drug company. KUOW's Austin Jenkins reports.

Drinking On Stage: Currently, bands are not allowed to drink on stage, but that may change. We talk to Justin Nordhorn, the enforcement chief for Washington's Liquor Control Board.

WA Firms Lagging On Climate Transparency: More and more of the world's biggest businesses say they are taking concerted action to fight climate change.
