  • Casual Friday with Jodi-Ann Burey and Zaki Hamid

    This week… Money is a construct, apparently. Popular Seattle grocery co-op PCC has a request for its members: please spend more money at PCC. If you’ve got $5 million to spare, you can buy a brand-new penthouse condo on 3rd Avenue that comes with the use of a luxury sports car. And Bumbershoot is back… but where are all the Seattle-based headliners? Author and speaker Jodi-Ann Burey and KUOW Director of Community Engagement Zaki Hamid are here to break down the week.

    It’s almost Memorial Day, a time set aside to remember people who’ve died in service of the country. It can be a particularly hard time for veterans, many of whom lost friends and loved ones during their time in service. Today, we revisit a story from last memorial day and speak to a mentor and veteran in The Red Badge project, an organization that helps veterans heal from loss through writing.
