Host Alison Cuddy talks to Greg Petrowich, executive director for WSIU public broadcasting in Carbondale, about how the federal government’s potential defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting might impact small and mid-sized public broadcasters in Illinois. And, Chicago Tribune's Ron Grossman explains why he thinks public broadcasting shouldn't be publically funded. Then, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, Alison Cuddy heads to Kelly’s Pub in Lincoln Park to talk Irish bars with Mike Danahey and Allison Hantschel, co-authors of Chicago’s Historic Irish Pubs.
