Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

Jun. 20, 2012

On Wednesday's Afternoon Shift we talk about a few dirty topics.

First we follow the crumbs from our dumpster to their final resting place- a landfill somewhere in Cook County. We even have an MIT researcher on hand to talk about the latest advancements in waste management.

Chris McDuffie, the former keyboardist in Apples in Stereo, brings his dirty garage music project, Whitejacket, to our studios for a live performance.

Listen to the first hour:

Listen to the second hour:

Our review panel of Alison Cuddy and Ron Litke digs deep into the sordid media landscape to find our 3@3.

Lester Munson weighs in on the dirty side of sports- Roger Clemens' and Jerry Sandusky's respective trials and what they say about the state of sports.

Curious City stops by for their second weekly segment. This week they figure out where all the elephant waste goes at Lincoln Park Zoo.

Finally, when crime sullies too much of a city, some choose to take matters into their own hands. We talk with the Chicago Chapter Leader and National Director of the Guardian Angels, a group of vigilante crime-fighters.
