The Give & Take

Public Radio Tulsa Event Series

Public Radio Tulsa’s event series The Give and Take is an opportunity to build community among public radio listeners and encourage civil discourse on the important issues facing our city, state, and nation, all in a relaxed setting.​

Unable to attend our March Give & Take on Medicaid expansion? No worries! You can hear the recording of the event here. Our conversation focused on Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma, what exactly this means, what the barriers are to expansion, and current proposed policy changes.

We're starting the 2019 Give & Take season with a special event you won't want to miss!

Ever wonder how a podcast is produced? Curious about the behind-the-scenes of a museum?  This is the event for you! It's guaranteed you'll learn something and have fun doing it! 

Join us for The Give & Take: Museum Confidential LIVE at Philbrook Museum Art, located at 2727 S Rockford Road Tulsa, OK 74114, on Wednesday, January 16, 2019  at 6:30 p.m. 

Tonight's Give & Take is CANCELLED due to the weather. We hope to see you soon! 

We want to hear from you! This midterm election season has been intense and historic. Where do we go from here and how do we process the results? 

Mark your calendar for Wednesday evening, September 12th at 7:00 p.m., when Public Radio Tulsa welcomes Edith Chapin, the Executive Editor of NPR News, to Tulsa!

Join Public Radio Tulsa for a Give and Take with our StateImpact Oklahoma reporters, Tuesday evening, May 15th at 6:00 p.m. at Heirloom Rustic Ales, 2113 East Admiral Boulevard. Come early, get a cold brew, and visit the food truck for a toasty panini…then settle in for a relaxed conversation with our StateImpact reporters.

One in seven adults has a mental illness, and one in 20 has a serious mental illness. Nearly 90,000 Tulsa County adults need treatment for severe mental illness but there isn't enough funding. Untreated mental illness is extremely costly to the state of Oklahoma. The compounding factors are complex and the solutions often seem bleak, so where do we go from here?

Oklahoma’s state prisons are overcrowded, dilapidated, and understaffed.  Women in Oklahoma are incarcerated at twice the national rate.  Two state questions aimed at sentencing reform passed in 2016, but they left major areas unaddressed. 

Sexual violence against women is not new. But the conversation about it is starting to change.  And the #MeToo movement has reflected thousands, or millions, more stories of personal pain and humiliation. We’re taking the conversation local.

The event series you loved last season is back! And we are kicking off the 2017/2018 season of The Give and Take with Scott Horsley, NPR White House Correspondent, in honor of our 70th Anniversary

 

Education. It is one of the most important and discussed issues in our state. We see it on the ballot and we see it in the daily headlines. 

But what questions do you have? What are your concerns? What actions do you want to see? Join us for the April Give and Take on education. 

The boys are back in town!  

And by boys, we mean the StateImpact reporters Joe Wertz and Logan Layden. Last fall they came to Tulsa to pitch in and help with the Fall Fund Drive but this spring they are back for YOU and the March Give and Take.
