Reflecting On A Winter Of Dibs In Chicago

Paint cans, folding chairs, orange cones, a broken stroller: “Dibs” come in many forms during snowy Chicago winters.

As we emerge from one of the snowiest periods in Chicago history and Chicago Streets and Sanitation workers prepare to clear away the dibs detritus, Reset talks with a man who created arguably the most iconic dibs of the season — two pairs of frozen trousers, standing up straight.

GUESTS: Adam Selzer, Chicago historian, tour guide, and author of Mysterious Chicago, creator of arguably the best dibs of 2021

Shermann Thomas, “TikTok historian”
