In her recent book, The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, WBEZ’s Natalie Moore weaves together her reporting on neighborhoods like Chatham, Beverly and Bronzeville with her own family’s story to illustrate how deep segregation runs in Chicago. Natalie joined us at the shop. Plus, we revisited a story about how Chicago’s iconic two-flat buildings are being reimagined for the 21st Century. For that conversation, host Richard Steele was joined by:
- Chris Bentley, who reported a story on two-flats for WBEZ’s Curious City.
- Bryan Hudson, Principal Architect and Owner of SOMA Design Consultants, and
- Dennis Rodkin, Residential real estate reporter for Crain’s Chicago Business
