Jan. 17, 2012

Tuesday many Wisconsin constituents were expected to submit petitions to recall Gov. Scott Walker. Eight Forty-Eight caught up with Wisconsin Public Radio state capitol reporter Shawn Johnson to get the backstory on the recall. Listeners were invited to share their opinions and questions about the recall process. Then, Chicago Tribune columnist Jon Yates discussed his new book What's Your Problem?: Cut Through Red Tape, Challenge the System, and Get Your Money Back. Yates took listeners’ questions on how to cut through the red tape and get answers. And, RedEye's Going Public reporter Tracy Swartz spent more than two years riding all 139 CTA bus routes throughout the city. Swartz shared some anecdotes about her journey.
