Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has long promised a more open city government. In the latest installment of The First 100 series, Eight Forty-Eight talks with Chicago Reader senior writer Mick Dumke and Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd Ward) about the progress and prospects for true transparency. And Robert Wildeboer continues his Under the Gun series comparing gun violence in Chicago and Toronto.

Then host Alison Cuddy talks with soul and gospel singer Otis Clay.
