In this special encore ...

In this special encore edition of Eight Forty-Eight, producer Ashley Gross delves into the theme of Chicago politics. We hear how Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is a master at memorizing the presidents, and what life behind bars was like for former Illinois Governor Dan Walker. Ed Bus, the fictional alderman of the 53rd Ward, makes a couple of appearances, and NPR's Scott Simon finds creative inspiration in the Windy City.
