All this week leading up to Wednesday’s Cubs play-in game, we’ve brought you excerpts of Cheryl Raye Stout talking to three of the team’s stars. If you just need more of a Cubbies fix, here are the three conversations in their complete form.
It’s do or die for the Chicago Cubs tonight. Plus, the team’s first baseman, Anthony Rizzo, talks about the day-to-day focus that got him this far. Then, we ask: what makes a police chief successful or unsuccessful? Also, our weekly shot of soul with Vocalo’s Ayana Contreras.
In just over a week, the Cubs will play a one-off wild card game against the Pirates. We talk with listeners about whether they're keeping their enthusiasm in check or letting it all hang out. We also speak with the producer of a new documentary about the Black Panther Party. And we have a conversation with longtime Chicago stage actor Mike Nussbaum.
