The two show segments centered around the "Battle of Seattle" (no, not the one of late-90s fame!).

Segment one featured Sydney Brownstone, a reporter for The Stranger, Seattle's only newspaper, an alt-weekly and a Pulitzer Prize-winning publication. Brownstone talked about her latest reporting on the oil-by-rail legal battle pitting the Swinowish Tribe vs. Warren Buffett's rail company giant BNSF Railway, as well as her prolific reporting on the battle over Shell's movement to use Seattle's port to store its tankers and accessories there as it awaits an opportunity to tap oil in the Arctic.

Segment two featured Adam Brown and Jason Reid, Director and Producer respectively of the documentary Sonicsgate, which covers the business wheeling and dealing that forced the Seattle SuperSonics to move from Seattle to become the Oklahoma City Thunder.
