What is Live Wire? | Live Wire Radio
Our Mission: Live Wire brings riveting, underrepresented voices to our stage for hilarious, heartbreaking, unexpected, and honest conversations that leave our listeners forever changed.

An independently produced non-profit in Portland, Oregon, the show artfully blends unpredictable conversation, live music, and original comedy featuring all types of cultural talent and creative minds, from emerging artists to established acts. We champion the curious-minded by producing witty, engaging, spirited, and genuine live and listening experiences for our audience and for ourselves.

We believe life is filled with inspired people doing fascinating and sometimes ridiculous things. We want to introduce you to those people. 
 
We believe artists are critically important to the world, and should be rewarded for their work. 
 
We believe "culturally relevant" and "funny" aren't mutually exclusive. 
 
We believe that through the shared experience of live theater and the intimacy of radio, we can tell great stories, introduce new ideas, spark conversations, and hopefully, elicit a belly laugh or two.
