    22. Bases Loaded

    The irony is the day this episode was recorded both the Sox AND Cubs lost and the scores were identical: 5-2.

    Nevertheless, both Chicago clubs are 1st place in their respective divisions and there are whispers yet again of a potential subway series in October, but we have a LONG way to go for that reality or are we CLOSER than we think?

Great listen

I’ve learned a lot about Chicago through this podcast. It’s a city I visit often and love, so learning about different aspects of the city and culture has been great. Love the different perspectives from people from the same city.

Couldn’t stop laughing!

If your from the Chi, or “from the Chi” (cause, yes suburbs folks claim Chicago too), you can definitely relate to this while on the floor dying of laughter.
