Tonight on Extension 720: A man shoots a woman in broad daylight. The police hunt him down. He shoots police. Police shoot him. The end? Still a lot of unanswered questions about this weekend and we have the Chicago Tribune’s Jeremy Gorner to help sort out the details. Also, the future of work is bleak. A study says we may lose up to half the jobs we count on in 20 years. So what will we do besides host talk shows? That’s the premise behind Working Nation. They join me tonight to talk about the changing landscape of employment. Also, we continue our tour of hidden Chicago landmarks with our favorite historian John R. Schmidt. Tonight: The story of Logan’s Tomb in Grant Park. And hip-hop artist and Save Money’s Towkio performs in studio, talks about new music and addresses sexual assault allegations. Let’s get to work.
This is the podcast for Extension 720. The show originates from Chicago on WGN Radio and features newsmakers, tastemakers and trailblazers. Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Justin Kaufmann, this talk show/audio magazine goes in-depth to help you better understand the city (and world) that you live in.
