The 3@3: Trusting infrastructure, sizing up Wrigley renovations and secret service scandal

Previous Next

Wednesday on the 3@3, we invite in members of Chicago's improv community to celebrate the Chicago Improv Festival. Jimmy Carrane and Rachael Mason join host Steve Edwards to talk about the stories of the day.

Which include:

Rachael and Jimmy in the middle of a famous sandwich

Steve Edwards: More plans have been announced today about renovations at Wrigley. Seeing you both have spent a major part of your lives at comedy clubs in Wrigleyville, what do you think of the renovation of Wrigley and the culture/neighborhood in general?

Rachael Mason: The government is going to continue investigations into the Secret Service after the scandal over prostitution in Columbia. Is this something we are surprised about? Does America consider this a political scandal or just an old fashioned sex scandal?

Jimmy Carrane: The infrastructure trust was passed yesterday, giving the mayor power to fund projects through a private trust. Will this change Chicago? And the bigger question, do regular Chicagoans care?
