Good morning!

Welcome to this edition of the Morning Drive Podcast!  

Today's news:

Planning on wearing colored, crazy contacts with your Halloween costume? Looks like you may be out of luck.

A Field Museum curator is digging around a cave in Greece that’s been compared to Hades.  Apparently, the cave could help explain why people choose to migrate to big cities or high tail it to the suburbs. And it has a surprising Chicago tie. 

Featured in the podcast:

The phrase “Chicago-style politics” is one that just won’t go away. It’s been used in this presidential election cycle against Barack Obama and even in elections closer to home in Illinois. So does it resonate with voters? WBEZ's Tony Arnold reports.

 

And your WEATHER for todaymostly cloudy in the morning, then cloudy with showers likely and a slight chance of thunderstorms later this afternoon. There might be some of that soft hail developing, like i told you yesterday. Highs in the mid 50s. Then tonight, showers likely with temperatures dropping to the 40s.


Friday, showers likely in the morning, then maybe some thunderstorms later. Highs in the upper 40s. Friday night, cloudy with scattered showers in the evening but clearing up around midnight. Lows in the lower 40s.
