OTL #482: Documenting Chicago’s segregation in pictures, Protecting our civil liberties, The Secret History of Blues guitarist Eddie Taylor
Mike Stephen talks with 18-year old artist / photographer Austyn Wyche about documenting segregation in Chicago via his Connected Division project, chats with Scrappers Film Group journalism producer Yana Kunichoff about the new “Rights Lab” web series (in collaboration with Truthout) that premieres with the Can the Government Spy on My Phone? episode at High Concept Laboratories, and checks in with Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about Delta-to-Chicago blues link Eddie Taylor for this week’s “Winter Blues” edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music. Meanwhile, we discuss Andy Boyle going big-time viral for his personal story of quitting drinking (and play back an excerpt from his appearance on the 12/30 Mike Stephen Show fill-in shift), as well as Goose Island offering refunds for some odd-tasting beers. This week’s local music is provided by Out the Car Window.
