The Interview Show, hosted by Mark Bazer, is a talk show recorded in a bar. But not just any bar. The Hideout is Chicago at its best: creative, progressive, experimental, generous and open to all. For 11 years, The Interview Show has set out to reflect those values and feature conversations with and performances by the most interesting people in Chicago and beyond.
