About Us

In Portland, Unpacked, Faustina Agolley takes you straight to the streets of Portland, Oregon. Portland’s reputation precedes it, but Faustina uncovers this is a city of many stories, many shades and many perspectives. Over six episodes, she’ll guide you through this unique part of America, unpacking all things Portland, from its complex history to its micro-farms, distilleries, music scene, and everything in between. There’s so much more to this city than pop culture would have you know.

Latest Episodes

E6 - Misfitting In

E5 - Seed To Table

Portland is a city of micro farms, food trucks and urban wineries. Small-scale experimental versions of grand ideas. This, paired with the region’s perfect climate for growing amazing produce, is why Portland has absolutely mastered seed-to-table deliciousness. Faustina meets a young farmer inventing new ingredients, and a collective where the tiniest wine labels come together to get their rare wines out into the world. Trap Kitchen is at 8523 SE Stark Street. This episode has a language warning. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

E5 - Seed To Table

E4 - Leap Of Faith

Portland is big on community. It’s an antidote to the high-flying, ladder-climbing world, and an invitation to slow down and reconnect over coffee, food, drink, politics and music. In this episode, Faustina unpacks how the social epicentre of the world’s sneaker industry can be traced to a tiny coffee shop in Portland’s Chinatown. And what happens when a clothing store rejects the norms of fashion and becomes a community for non-conformists. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

E4 - Leap Of Faith

E3 - Portland Re-mixed

For decades, Portland has been synonymous with punk, grunge and indie rock. Music is in this city’s blood. But how does a place with so much music history hold on to what made it great, while opening up to a new generation? Faustina meets local musicians and cultural critics to unpack the music landscape of Portland today. This episode has a language warning. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

E3 - Portland Re-mixed

E2 - Changing The Game

When you think about booze in Portland, you probably think of beer – specifically craft beer. But the Portland scene has so much more to offer. Faustina visits a local gin and whiskey distillery that’s an all woman operation, from the farmers growing the grain to the team barrelling and bottling. Later, Faustina unpacks sophisticated cannabis culture in Portland, how the city has made the most of legalisation, and how women are making weed theirs.

E2 - Changing The Game

E1 - Edge of America

Faustina has just landed in Portland and is getting her bearings with a local. Sarah Mirk crafts zines about Portland’s past, full of stories explaining how Portland became the city it is today. She says it’s no accident Portland is an alternative and progressive town, but the city hasn’t always been this way. In fact, it’s been a winding road to get here.
