The Mincing Rascals are John Williams of WGN Radio, Eric Zorn of The Picayune Sentinel and The Daily Herald, Heather Cherone of WTTWAustin Berg of the Illinois Policy Institute, and Brandon Pope, host of ‘On the Block‘ on WCIU.

The Chicago mayoral race is starting to pick up speed as a number of candidates have released new political ads. Does it make sense for Mayor Lightfoot to go after Congressman Chuy Garcia with a negative ad?

And speaking of Chicago, Austin encourages everyone to watch “South Side” on HBO Max!
