At the start of the economic downturn, we heard about the "mancession.” A 2010 Atlantic article even predicted the “end of men” and the ascension of women as primary breadwinners. Heidi Hartmann, president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, and Bloomberg Businessweek editor Peter Coy, examine who’s winning and losing in the new economy. To join the conversation, call 312.923.9239. Then, Eight Forty-Eight talks to Ravi Shankar’s other musical daughter, Anoushka Shankar, virtuoso sitar player. She performs tonight at the Pick-Staiger Concert Hall at Northwestern University. WBEZ music blogger and Sound Opinions co-host Jim DeRogatis gives a behind-the-scenes look at the hurdles faced by the city-run music festivals.
