It was a thousand degrees in Chicago during this week's The Paper Machete episode, so why not celebrate the outdoors? TimeOut's Kris Vire comments on en route, the new Chicago play with more walking than one might normally expect. Julienne Bilker talks about looking up Marilyn Monroe's skirt in downtown Chicago. Let's take it back, by digging into the archives and listening to Kate James with a sports report about the infamous drunk Cubs fan. And as you're leaving, Good Evening will serenade you. As usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE. Download it here, or listen below.

This weekend's line-up includes an original play entitled Radio Play from The Factory Theater that takes place at Lollapalooza, slam poet John Paul Davis finally talks about Amy Winehouse, Brooke Breit of Second City whines about the Netflix price hike, and sketch comedy duo Irene Marquette and Aggie Hewitt go on about Elizabeth Smart's new television gig. iO's Conner O’Malley and Scott Levy from Best Church of God will also be there. But come for what you don't know will happen, which will be a lot.
