Segment 2:  CNET Editor at Large Ian Sherr chats with John about a variety of tech stories including Amazon setting the date for their wildly popular “Prime Day” and Facebook encouraging people to vote while also trying to slow down the spread of misinformation on the social network.

Segment 3: Jen Van Valkenburg, CEO and President, Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance, tells John about some of the great things going on at the conservatory including “The Flowers of Monet” exhibit and why early Fall is the perfect time for a visit.

Segment 4: WGN Reporter and Crain’s Daily Gist host Amy Guth gives us a round-up of the latest business stories including United Airlines offering travelers to Hawaii a $250 COVID test if you want to skip quarantine upon arrival and Chicago-based Kraft Heinz offering pumpkin spice mac & cheese in Canada.
