Mike Stephen talks with:
- Taft High School history teacher Mayra Almaraz-De Santiago about her Gapers Block op-ed “Give Me a Mirror: Why Students Need to Connect to their Teachers” on building connections in the classroom;
- Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about mysterious jazz-proggers McLuhan for this week’s edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music; and
- author and cultural critic Anne Elizabeth Moore about her latest project — Afterparty: A Community Guide for the Future, a science fiction novella slash cookbook collaboration with Sonnenzimmer.
Meanwhile, Mike admits to his addiction to LaCroix in wake of learning of Chicagoans being overtaxed on sparkling water!
This week’s local music is provided by Chris Bolint.
OTL host Mike Stephen offers his services as a spokesperson for LaCroix Sparkling Water.
