Jason Marck fills in for Alison Cuddy; Marck talks with public radio legend Bob Edwards about his latest book, A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio. Then, 53rd ward Alderman Ed Bus weighs in on the Inspector General’s ideas for Chicago’s budget. Ten years ago, Illinois passed a law that allows parents in crisis to give away their newborn babies safely and legally. WBEZ’s Kristen McQueary examines the law, the families that grew out of it and the woman who set it all in motion. And Lucia Mauro previews two local dance performances inspired by historic female figures.
