Episode 24 - George Floyd and Minneapolis

May 28, 2020

Recently, I shared a posting on Facebook after watching news and video of the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests in Minneapolis,  Minnesota. 

I was taken aback by how many people reached out to me and said that my words impacted them. So I thought I would expound on my thoughts for you all.  

If you know someone who has been talking about this case, please share this with them.  Please share it with friends who are inquiring, or criticizing.  

I would love to hear your thoughts on this issue. Got something to say?

Episode 22 - Chicago Bookstores

May 1, 2020

Hello Friends!  This episode we’re talking Chicago bookstores! Independent bookstores are my favorite type of Chicago business, and of course I’ve been concerned about their ability to do business throughout this quarantine period, so I’m talking a few of my favorite independent bookstores, and giving you info so that you can support them.  Or, if you’re not in Chicago, definitely support the independent bookstores in your neck of the woods.
