Ever had a run-in with a Chicago rat? You’re not alone! Join WBEZ’s Curious City for a rat-ical night of live storytelling all about our city’s resident rodents. We’ll also talk with a scientist about cutting-edge rat research, and hear some of your wildest rat tales.
The inspiration for this event came from Curious City questioner Justin Carrasco, who asked the question that prompted our story (and zine!) about how many rats are in Chicago, and why.
