This week was our Mid-Month Mash Up, a check-in with our favorite local journalists and bloggers. We got their views on the recent local and national news headlines that caught their eye.
Host Richard Steele was joined by:
• Becky Vevea, WBEZ Education Reporter
• La Risa Lynch, Freelance Journalist
But this month, we also heard about how gun violence impacted one man and his North Kenwood community in a very unexpected way.
For that conversation, we were joined by:
Isaac Monroe, North Kenwood resident
And Brian Cassella, a Tribune Photojournalist who has been documenting communities the “Next Day” (after an instance of gun violence).
