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.
