It's Episode 12 of NaPodPoMo 2020.
On this mile of our journey, I talk about the Back of the Yards neighborhood? How did it get that name? Let's talk about!
This is mile #10 of our exploration of the longest street in Chicago, Western Ave, which spans 24 miles right through the city. We'll be taking the rest of 2020 to "Stroll down Western Ave." as part of the National Podcasting Post Month. We didn't finish in November, but the party don't stop!
Make sure you have your phone handy as you listen, it will make things so much better. Trust me!
Let's continue our walk together this November as we explore this historic street.
