OTL #521: Religion and politics, Ruckus Entrepreneurs, Chicago food truck struggles
Mike Stephen talks with U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom chair Fr. Thomas J. Reese, SJ about his upcoming “Religion & Politics 2016” Albertus Magnus Lecture at Dominican University, chats with Concordia Place teen program manager Gwyndolyn Siebert Moss and teen program instructor Rene Pineda about teaching kids to run a business via the Ruckus Entrepreneurs program, and checks in with Illinois Food Truck Association head Gabe Wiesen about the struggles to run a food truck business (like his very own Beavers Donuts) in the city of Chicago. Meanwhile, we celebrate the CTA testing non-fabric plastic seats on its buses and trains! This week’s local music is provided by The Gold Web.
