Today on Eight Forty-Eight, we look back at the biggest stories of the year so far. The Chicago Tribune's Eric Zorn, Sports Illustrated's Lester Munson and The Washington Post's Kari Lydersen join us to discuss the news of January in our Month in Review. Plus, Richard Steele talks with the curator of the August Wilson Celebration about the playwright's life and impact on the Chicago theater scene. Then, our Dueling Critics take a swing at the latest staging of Wilson's Radio Golf. And Dan Bindert talks the blues with Chicago Blues: Portraits and Stories author David Whiteis.
