Friday on Eight Forty-Eight, University of Chicago professor Mark Heyrman and Debbie Breta from Housing Options in Evanston discuss the living options available to people with mental illness. They're joined by Laura Tinsley, who describes her experience as a former resident of an institute for mental disease (IMD). To join the conversation, call 312.923.9239.
 
Then, WBEZ theater bloggers Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Ababarbanel “duel” over the Goodman's production of The Iceman Cometh and give their take on what happens when New York celebrities descend on Chicago theater.
 
And throughout the hour, we hear from harmonica master Corky Seigel, whose music has been described as "Beethoven meets B.B. King."
