Mar 8, 2023

Post-pandemic Chicago in many ways is navigating a new crisis of division.  In this episode of the Crisis Cast, veteran journalist Justin Kaufmann from Axios brings his giant map of 50 wards and unpacks the next chapter of mayoral politics in his hometown.

Lissa & Thom come loaded with questions about Chicago's two most powerful unions and their influence on City Hall.  Justin breaks down some truths about voter turnout, and why he believes the April runoff election for mayor is a referendum on the idealogy of the Second City.
Plus, we saved some time for 16-inch softball trash talk.
