We bring those questions to you and some special guests in our live show from the Windy City! Featuring Calumet City poet José Olivarez, the creators of the HBO Max comedy series South Side — Sultan Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle — and WBEZ’s Adriana Cardona-Maguidad, this show unpacks what it means to be at home in Chicago, and race and segregation in the city. Musical guest and Chicago native KAINA and her band play us through the show, featuring sounds from her latest album It Was A Home.
