January Mid-Month Mash Up

This week was our January Mid-Month Mash Up, where we checked in with a couple of our favorite local Journalists. They told us about the local headlines that they liked, disliked, or that made them say WTF?! We were joined by Freelance Writer Claudia Garcia-Rojas and Maria Zamudio from the Chicago Reporter. We also talked about the Listener's Choice story: The recently uncovered video of a 35 year old homeless man's 2010 death. He was allegedly caught shoplifting toothpaste at a CVS Pharmacy in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood. The store manager was caught on tape strangling the homeless man, who ultimately died. No one was charged in the man's death. Listeners voted using a poll on the Chicago Reporter’s Chicago Muckrakers blog. Join us live at Carter’s - 3622 W Cermak Road, or follow the conversation online. Via twitter - @vocalo or @chicagoreporter Or give us a call at 888-635-1112 and let us know what’s on your mind.
