Thirty-First Busiversary (2021-22)

Flying Focus prides itself on long-form programming, giving people working for social change more time to talk than the sound bites given to them (if at all) on the mainstream media. But once a year, we look back at the shows we produced in shorter, two-to-three minute clips to give people a sense of what the longer shows are like. The "Thirty-First Busiversary" includes clips from 14 shows (made up of 24 episodes) produced between November 2021 and October 2022.

In part 1, three shows address the climate catastrophe, one delves into population issues, and another includes an interview with a former Guantanamo guard working for change. Rounding out the first half-hour are clips from a roving weekly protest for Black and Indigenous lives, and a show about the committee that's supposed to advise Portland Police on how to avoid using violence against people with mental illness.

The second half includes our shows about justice rallies for Patrick Kimmons (who was killed by the Portland Police), people advocating for universal health care, protests and analysis about Russia's war on Ukraine and two shows on banning animal cruelty (products like foie gras and fur). The final two shows delve into foreign affairs, with a show about Israel's occupation of Palestine and a retired army colonel discussing the US and NATO focusing on the Pacific rather than the Atlantic as NATO's name implies.

Because of the pandemic, several of the shows were partially or fully recorded using computer connections, though eleven of them include footage recorded by Field Coordinator PC Peri. The clips are introduced by producers Barb Greene and Dan Handelman.
