We learn how the participatory budget process is working in the country’s only example of it, Alderman Joe Moore’s 49th ward in Chicago. Also, writer Teresa Puente shares how a trip to Mexico changed her feelings about death. Plus, clarinetist-composer James Falzone and his group, Allos Musica, join us for a performance.  They tell us about their new album, Lamentations.
