It has been a couple of years since we talked about The Archive Project, and since it is ongoing and worthwhile, we’re giving it another mention.

A co-production of Literary Arts and Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), The Archive Project streams weekly podcasts from the archives of the Portland Arts & Lectures series. Season Five includes the voices of Tom Hanks, DeRay Mckesson, a Tribute to Ursula K Le Guin, as well as the Verselandia! city-wide youth poetry slam, the Portland Book Festival, and other community events.

You can browse the entire list or search by season, topic, tone, or genre. It’s all free at Literary Arts, OPB, and iTunes.
