Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

May. 30, 2012

On Wednesday's Afternoon Shift we talk about knowing what's good for yourself. First we talk about Pop Art- specifically the Roy Lichtenstein retrospective currently at the Art Institute of Chicago. When Lichtenstein first introduced his comic-inspired style it wasn't even considered art. Now Pop Art is seen as an essential segment of the art world.

Next we talk about employer wellness programs on our Workplace Wednesday segment. Does your office know what's best for your health?

Finally the new head of the Chicago Public Library, Brian Bannon, joins us to talk about the state of the city's book barns. What's better for you than reading?
