Mike Stephen talks with:
- Connected Division artist/photographer Austyn Wyche about documenting segregation in Chicago via his Connected Division project;
- Scrappers Film Group journalism producer Yana Kunichoff about the new “Rights Lab” web series (in collaboration with Truthout) that premieres with the Can the Government Spy on My Phone? episode at High Concept Laboratories; and
- Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about Delta-to-Chicago blues link Eddie Taylor for this week’s “Winter Blues” edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music.
Meanwhile, we discuss Andy Boyle going big-time viral for his personal story of quitting drinking (and play back an excerpt from his appearance on the 12/30 Mike Stephen Show fill-in shift), as well as Goose Island offering refunds for some odd-tasting beers.
This week’s local music is provided by Out the Car Window.
