    Save The Turtles, Eat A Butterfly

    Save The Turtles, Eat A Butterfly

    In this episode of ”30 Minutes Of Good” we’re learning about the south side charity Christmas Without Cancer and several events coming up soon in your area. We also check in with a south side brewery prepping for their first Oktoberfest, and it sounds like a doozy. And a trip to Tinley Park to see a concert with the kids turns into a money-sucking pile of ridiculousness for one of the guys.

    All Aboard The Beer Train

    All Aboard The Beer Train

    We’re talking beer with south side brewer Ryan Czaja at Flossmoor Station Brewing Company this week. This local brewery and restaurant has taken a Metra train stop and turned it into a spot for families, singles, music-lovers and craft beer fans. We also hear from south suburban election law expert Burt Odelson as he talks about why more people should run for public office even if it isn’t as simple as it should be to run. Find good dental work at the local Wendy’s during this ”30 Minutes Of Good!”

A podcast focused on the South surburbs? Yes, please.

Just found this popcast and I’m hooked. Fun to listen about interesting topics in the area.

T. Duh-boo-you ,

Two snaps up and a Z formation!

Bill is funny. Mike, not so much but saves his talents for the geeeetar. And while Chris might not be known for his angelic singing voice, he sure can hit and hold a note and produce a great show. Keep em coming boys! Best south side podcast on the southwest suburbs! Food, beer, news tailored to my kind of peeps.

The Best Of The South Side!

Can’t wait to hear the next episode!
