Host Richard Steele dug into into both the local and national faces of the problem with our guests:
• Will Evans, a reporter for the Center for Investigative Reporting. The center co-produces the radio show “Reveal”
• WBEZ Westside Bureau Reporter Chip Mitchell
Then, we heard about “The Signal: A Doo Wop Rhapsody”: a show that recounts Henry Farag’s experiences growing up during the doo-wop era in Gary, Indiana.
