On our 103rd episode we ask the question always on everyone's minds: why?

First, in a reprisal of our segment from last month, we invite the Better Government Association to field your questions on why government works the way it does.

In our 3@3 review panel, David Bernstein of Chicago magazine and Brigid Sweeney of Crain’s Chicago Business join us to talk about why certain stories are bigger than others.

Then we look at the Tribune's recent series on flame retardants. Why are there so many of them in our home?

Finally, Rev. Jesse Jackson joins us for an in-depth interview. We ask him why his son is so tired these days.
