Good morning!

Welcome to this edition of the Morning Drive Podcast! In this episode, we hear about the changing roles of nuns in the 21st century.

But first, some news:

► Contract talks for the teachers’ union are still continuing, but we’re crossing our fingers that school will be back on Monday. (You can follow our education reporers, Becky Vevea and Linda Lutton, on Twitter.)

Bad news for the Bears.

Featured in the podcast:

► In low-income neighborhoods, there is a range of views about whether the teachers should be out on strike. After four days without school, though, there was consensus that the work stoppage is having a big impact on parents and children.

► There are some big improvements in stock for Midway airport. Like, BIG.

Your weather for today: mostly clear skies with highs in the low 70s.

Tonight’s low is 57.

And tomorrow and Sunday both look pretty nice, with clear skies and highs in the mid-to-high 70’s.
