We take a look inside the “Citizens Police Data Project”and how it could make the Chicago Police Department more accountable to the public. Plus world renowned Rabbi Jonathan Sacks tackles the issue of violence carried out in the name of religion. And we’ve got another installment of our series My Life in Three Songs with Sound Opinions co-host Jim DeRogatis. Plus the Reverend Jesse Jackson shares his thoughts on racial tensions, student protests and the power of a football team at the University of Missouri.
Jim DeRogatis is a longtime music critic and journalist and the cohost of Sound Opinions on WBEZ. So when we recently posed our challenge to listeners and guests to define their lives in just three songs, we knew we had to ask him.
Ahead of R. Kelly headlining Pitchfork Music Festival, WBEZ’s Jim DeRogatis talks to two fans of the Chicago native's music about whether separating the art from the artist is possible, and why it matters.
