About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

Jun. 26, 2012

On Tuesday's Afternoon Shift we talk about a few well established traditions that are changing before our eyes.

First we focus on retirement. What once seemed a certain reward for a long and dedicated career isn't as certain anymore. We talk about how things are changing.

Then we look at political engagement. The traditional understanding of grassroots politics includes knocking on doors, phonebanking and posting yard signs.

Finally, we talk with Chicago attorney David Ellis about his seventh novel, The Wrong Man.
