On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we check-in with our favorite local journalists and bloggers. They told us about recent developments in the news that they liked and ones they disliked. Then they told us those moments that made them go WTF!?!
This week we were be joined by Glenn Readus of The Chicago Crusader
and Maria Zamudio of the Chicago Reporter.
Plus, we talked with WBEZ’s Bill Healy about the Mother’s Day Parade tragedy in New Orleans. He was there. He shared his thoughts on the story, and the group discussed why they think it’s not getting the national news coverage that the Boston Marathon Bombing got.
