· Tue, Apr 30 2013 09:47:33 The Constitution: Peter Sagal, the host of NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, has spent the last year on a motorcycle road trip across the U.S. talking to Americans about the Constitution. His efforts culminated in the documentary series Constitution USA with Peter Sagal, which airs on PBS stations Tuesdays in May. He and constitutional expert Steve Schwinn, a professor at John Marshall Law School, find the funny in the founding document and say how it exists in everyday life. How does the Constitution factor into your day-to-day?

The Constitution is just four sheets of parchment. By itself, it does nothing but fade. So why did it work (mostly?) Tweet #afternoonshiftPeter Sagal
@petersagal It pits sources of power against each other, creating balance. #afternoonshiftMichael Miles
@petersagal People believe in it. It represents more (for better or worse) to people than what it actually is. #afternoonshiftRevengeance OnQD
#afternoonshift It worked because the founders put their life, wealth, and family all on the line. That sacrifice inspired a whole nation.Sarah Wood
Parking: Mayor Rahm Emmanuel announced changes to Chicago’s agreement with the private company that runs the city’s parking. The good news: Neighborhood parking is free on Sundays. The catch: the rest of the week metered parking will extend to 10 pm in areas that used to end at 9 pm. WBEZ reporter Al Keefe joins to explain. Are you satisfied with the changes?

Bulls Three-Peat: This season marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 World Champion Chicago Bulls, otherwise known as the “Three-Peat.” WBEZ sports contributor Cheryl Raye-Stout and Kent McDill, author of the book 100 Things Bulls Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, share their recollections of the historic season and the turmoil that followed Michael, Scottie and coach Phil Jackson, ultimately leading the biggest breakup in sports (until they made up two years later). What are your memories?

“Raiteros”: Some of America’s best-known companies and largest temp agencies benefit from — and tacitly collaborate with — an underworld of labor brokers, known as raiteros. ProPublica’s Michael Grabell and Marketplace’s Jeff Tyler conducted dozens of interviews, followed the workers from their 4 am pickup location in Chicago’s Little Village, the largest Mexican community in the Midwest, and examined hundreds of documents to expose the practice. They tell Afternoon Shift about their investigation.
