It's the Chicago Reader's 40th birthday, and Michael Miner joins us because he's been there for it all. Hans Holsen becomes METRA PR man Harvey Pilker, here to explain fare hikes. Whit Nelson explains science, specifically, neutrinos. Thea Lux performs as Nadine Valentine.
This was just a big, big news week, so Chad the Bird recaps it for you. Matt Klingler plays Terrence McCarthy, who talks about the cancellation of The Playboy Club. James Porter weighs in on the Hank Williams Jr. Hitler controversy. Katie Rich gives election advice to single ladies.
