About the show

My Real Portland is a fun, live podcast that celebrates local creators with a focus on comedy and music from women, people of color, & the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Comedy

the portland comedy scene is hotter than ever with multiple open mics every night, national headliners performing weekly from Helium to the schnitz, and some of the hardest working craftspeople.

Featuring acts from Season One: Whitney Streed, Joe Hieronymus, Brandon Lyons, and Caitlin Weierhauser

Music

portland’s music scene has been phenomenal for decades, fostering tremendous talent and extraordinary performers. my real portland has featured amazing acts from people i’ve known for nearly 30 years to emerging composers and songwriters. each musician performs 2-3 of their works, plus joins me on stage for the interview and the “fast five!”

featuring segments from Nikole Potulski, Joaquin Lopez, Jana Losey Crenshaw, and Jonah Willbach

featured portlandians

Each show I invite a storyteller, a theater director, a social leader, or somebody working on a fascinating local project. I talk to an urban beekeeper & actress about performing with bees and other actors - and an author & chef who’s literally helping rewrite the famous joy of cooking. always fascinating!

 
You were amazingly perfect and the little start of a ‘Turn Loose the Voices’ reunion was memorable - Still here💜
