In this Justin Kaufmann Show series, Chicago historian John R. Schmidt takes us on a tour of Chicago’s “Hidden Chicago Landmarks.” Tonight, John and Justin discuss three lesser known fugitive stories…the manhunt for Richard Carpenter that ended on Potomac Avenue in Chicago, Chicagoan Herbert Haupt being arrested at 2234 N. Fremont St. for being a German spy in 1942 and radical Emma Goldman, who was accused of conspiring to murder the President of the United States, being found in an apartment on Sheffield Avenue in 1901.

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.
