Discussion at Brookings Café: Conspiracy Theories

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Are there really children being held prisoner on Mars? Are the dead children from the Sandy Hook School Massacre really alive and well because they were paid actors? What about those planes that slammed in the Twin Trade Towers; were they really just holograms to cover a government plot to blow up the buildings? Conspiracy theories … that’s the discussion at Brookings Café.

Brookings Café … a discussion about what’s important to you.

Discussion at Brookings Café: Garbage, Recycling, and Stuff

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Every once in a while we feature a special discussion at Brookings Café, an open discussion where there is no set topic in advance, we leave it open for people to bring in their own topics. As producer of the show, I like to think that the table here is a radio version of letters to the editor, where people have the chance to express their thoughts without being limited to 500 words. We started talking about garbage, pollution, and recycling. Here’s that discussion.

Discussion at Brookings Café: Religion

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

There’s an old saying that says it is not a good idea to discuss either religion or politics in polite company. Religion is a personal subject and it can be the center of major conflict. Here we managed to maintain polite company, but the discussion goes deep into what it means to have a belief system. What does it mean to believe in something? Is it important? We won’t make any judgments as to what is the right religion, but here’s what a few people have to say on the subject.

Discussion at Brookings Café: Racism

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

This week’s discussion is about racism and other prejudices. Our participants come from diverse backgrounds and points of view, hopefully representative of Brookings. They each have stories of their own to tell and we should have conversations about things like the NFL players who take a knee, the criminal justice system and we are asking the question: where does prejudice come from in the first place?
