Morning Shift: October 13, 2015

Let’s say you’re Muslim, or Jewish, or from Senegal, or China and you’re having a baby. You have a dilemma: do you give your child a name from your culture,say, Muhammed or Yitzchak, or a more common American or Americanized name, like Dylan or Madison? We talk about that. Plus, civil rights activist DeRay McKesson is taking his message to the streets — and to twitter. Then, the Edison Park neighborhood hosts the 6th annual EPIC comedy fest. And musician Bob Forrest has gone to the darkest places with his addictions, and he’s come back into the light to help others recover. He plays intimate, personal music from his new album “Survival Songs.”
