A great Chicago podcast

The re-imagine Chicago series has been so good these last few weeks! Everyone livingin the city should check it out. Through that series and the regular daily episodes I’ve learned so much about what’s going on in the city, what has got us to where we are, and what we could do differently going forward.

Sasha-Ann Simons is awesome

I listen to Reset every chance I get. Big fan since it started a couple years ago. Your new host Sasha-Ann Simons keeps the conversation moving in a thoughtful, engaging way. I think you guys have found a hidden gem!

Chicagoans

Love reset and the topics however not a fan of Sasha she just doesn’t push back in questioning the way Justin and Jen would.

In-depth topics just come off as fluff pieces because she doesn’t steer the conversation ever it’s always the interviewee.
