This week, we checked in with some our favorite local journalists and bloggers for our monthly mash-up.
They told us about developments in the news that they think are good news, and ones that they think are bad news.
Host Richard Steele was joined by:
• WBEZ Education reporter Becky Vevea
• Ben Joravsky, reporter with the Chicago Reader
• Monroe Anderson, veteran journalist and commentator
And this month, we’ll also hear about a new book chronicling the hidden histories of cartoonists of color.
For that we were joined by:
• Tim Jackson, Author of Pioneering Cartoonists of Color (published by University Press of Mississippi)
