Jim Brunberg


Jim Brunberg JD ’06, a musician, sound engineer, and producer, is probably best known to music fans around Portland as the founder and co-owner of two iconic venues: Mississippi Studios and Revolution Hall. But a podcast project, undertaken with his twin 8-year-old daughters, also gained attention a few years ago. Brunberg and the children hit the road to interview everyone from Oregon’s governor to gun shop owners to Big Foot experts as they explored issues like death, the Second Amendment, fear, memory, and more. Their guiding principle? “Let’s go find out.” While each episode of Roam Schooled is centered around questions posed by Brunberg’s young daughters, the podcast is for adults. It was named one of the “10 Oregon-Made Podcasts You Have To Hear” on opb.org.
