It's back to school for Chicago students. We hear from a couple of high schoolers as they look forward to a new year. Also, we explore a different side to political campaigning. And, the sounds of Chicago's Sones de Mexico stop by to celebrate twenty years of music making.
We talk about the pros and cons of sale by owner and if using a realtor is the best option. And, we look at how some teachers are talking about Ferguson in the classroom. Then, we hear the latest work from Oak Park clarinetist James Falzone.
While some programs have met with success, other farms in the city haven't had success. We check in with some farmers trying to bring farming-and healthy eating-to city neighborhoods. And, the city celebrates the U.S. Little League champs.
We talk about the uptick in funding to vocational training programs as more graduates are finding work in their fields of study. And, with constituents expressing disapproval for their elected officials, how are incumbents staying in office?
Preservationists are pushing for Chicago's Pullman neighborhood to be included in the National Park System. We learn more about the neighborhood's history. And one family goes all in on the Chicago Triathlon this weekend.
We get a recap of the Jackie Robinson West game against Pearland, TX, and we take a look at the deep Polish roots of Chicago's Avondale neighborhood. And, "Reclaimed Soul" host, Ayana Contreras, pays homage to the "Godfather of Soul."
