It's Episode 19 of my NaPodPoMo series.
On this mile of our journey, I talk about the communities of Humboldt Park and Wicker Park. Did you know that Frank Baum wrote 'Wizard of Oz' while living in Humboldt Park? Well, tune in to this episode to learn a bunch of other things you may not know!
This is mile #17 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 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!
