Take a moment to look at your bookmarked internet sites, your Twitter feed and Facebook. Notice anything? Perhaps it’s that everything you pick, or the things and people you follow, fit into your personal worldview. Even with the unprecedented number of options available to us on the web, we still tend to gravitate towards things we like, and people like us. Some people call this the internet echo chamber and we talk about how to break out of it. Also, we have a conversation with Young Adult author M.T. Anderson. His latest work is a piece of nonfiction that tells story of Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and his musical response to the siege of Leningrad during World War Two. Plus, several Chicago neighborhoods are hot — at least when it comes to house flipping. And we learn the good, the bad and the ugly of Chicago’s sports teams.
