Rick Kogan is joined by Scott Jacobs to talk about his book, “Famous Ski Hills of Wisconsin.” Kogan and Jacobs also talk about the time they both spent in the Sun-Times newsroom.

From the book’s description: “It’s a short list­­ – the famous ski hills of Wisconsin – that teaches one of life’s great lessons: things aren’t always what they are cracked up to be. In this collection of humorous essays, Scott Jacobs explores a boyhood of idyllic pastimes and the questions it led to later in life. Why is Budweiser beechwood aged? Is Black Friday a scam? And where have all the waysides gone? Here is proof positive that Wisconsin isn’t a state, it’s a state of mind; and gentle good humor is the coin of the realm.”
