Join us in the City of Big Shoulders for a show on transitions — from here to there, from low to high and from fish to humans. Our panelists are:

Che “Rhymefest” Smith, Grammy-winning hip-hop artist and political organizer, who went through more than 50 jobs to get where he is now.

Ginger Evans, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation, who is partially to blame for the TSA.

Mary Catherine Curran, Chicago-based comedian, who knows how to deal with problems in transit.

Our real-time fact-checker is Jesse Dukes, producer of WBEZ’s Curious City stories.

    This episode contained some advice about taking naps after working a long shift. I’m an over-the-road truck driver and I’ve seen too many mangled cars and trucks on the sides of roads and in ditches. Please, if you are too tired to drive, park your car and take an eight hour nap. I don’t care how many lives you save in the hospital. Don’t kill someone with your car.
