Reader senior writer Ben Joravsky riffs on the day's stories with his celebrated humor, insight, and honesty, and interviews politicians, activists, journalists and other political know-it-alls. Presented by the Chicago Reader, the show is available by 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays at chicagoreader.com/joravsky or on the Reader's YouTube channel—or wherever you podcast. Don't miss Oh, What a Week!--the Friday feature in which Ben & special guests review the week's top stories. Also, bonus interviews drop on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Reader podcasts are recorded on Shure microphones. Learn more at Shure.com.
Laurie Glenn & Juanita Irizarry return. And after a word or two or three about MAGA and the Brown-Jackson hearings, the talk turns to casinos. As in--it's crazy that Chicago would rely so much on the proceeds from a vice. Also, a word or two about how you must be doing something right if the Tribune's editorial squad criticizes you.
