Hitting Left with the Klonsky Brothers

Bloggers, activists and brothers Mike and Fred Klonsky get together each week, often with special guests in studio and from around the country, to discuss current topics involving politics, education and social justice "from the Left side of the plate." The topics covered may be local, national or international but always with a Chicago sensibility and perspective.

This week, The Klonskys talk to Fritz Kaegi about his candidacy for Cook County Assessor. The boys talk about sports a little bit too, which is a shame since everyone knows Jamie's the sportswriter. Jerry's back in the chair, guess he didn't quit after all. And don't come here looking for a new show next week: Lumpen Radio is closed for Turkey Day.

This week: UIC profs Josh Radinsky and David Stovall from Chicagoland Researchers and Advocates for Transformative Education (CReATE), a network of education researchers from area universities, stop by to chat about school closings, teacher testing and much more. No sports questions this week as Fred is just so upset with the NFL. And who isn't, really? Jamie's back in the chair, but never fear, it only took him 2 minutes to quit today.

Juanita Irizarry stops by to talk about the failed George Lucas Museum lakefront project that her group, Friends of the Parks, successfully opposed. Some guy named Ed also drops by, I wonder how he got in the building. There is no joy in Mudville as the Doyers struck out.
