We have the arguments for and against race-day playlists during the Chicago Marathon. Also, we give you ideas for things to do in the suburbs if you're looking to avoid the traffic headaches that will come along with the marathon. Plus, two WBEZ reporters join us to recap the conversations that are happening at Chicago’s city budget hearings. And the conversations that aren't happening...thanks to our obsessions with iPhones, tablets, Twitter, and Facebook.
We take a look at how to get more low income kids into college-and explore the challenges faced by both potential students and universities. Also, an update on Senate hearings calling for reform at DCFS.
Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth tells us how the government shutdown is affecting small businesses and local organizations like the Greater Chicago Food Depository . We also take a look back and reflect on the "Bartman Game" a decade later.
