Mike Stephen has some advice for the upcoming singles profile in Chicago Magazine, learns about a community discussion series that takes place in a local barber shop, talks about the CTA warning against excessive photography, and chats with the editor of The Lake Street Lookout.
Alice Kim – Director of The Public Square
“Shop Talk” is an event put on by The Public Square that intends to foster discussion about a wide range of issues. It takes place at Ron’s Barber Shop at 6058 W. North Ave every last Friday of the month. We discuss the importance of these kinds of programs.
Carlos Miller– Photojournalist, writer, activist
Carlos recently came across the picture below and was outraged to see that the CTA is apparently equating photographing on public transit to terrorist activity. He joins us this week to discuss the issue.
Kathy Kozan – Editor of The Lake Street Lookout
The West Loop area has seen an influx of people and businesses, which is a good thing. Sometimes, however, there are unintended consequences of more people in the area- especially in the wee hours of the morning. We get the details.
