A History of Chicago Police and the Case for Police Abolition with Prof. Robert Vargas
Sociologist and native Chicagoan Robert Vargas sat down with UC3P to discuss the evolution of his views on policing, the origins of the CPD as we know it today, and why he’s become an advocate of police abolition.
Very cool stuff
Really good diversity of topics - and I like that it doesn’t blitz you with episodes every day that you feel obligated to catch up on. Weekly is great.
Up-and-coming podcast network. Really impressive from students.
I worked with UC3P on putting out the episode ‘Flip Phone Diaries’. They are a really professional team, even though they are students at the University of Chicago. The podcast ‘Naked Love’ is brilliant because it is taking on taboo subjects.
Keep growing UC3P!
Great commentary on current issues
Incredibly solid podcast for anyone interested in policy issues related to criminal justice, prison reform, environmental issues, political campaigns, law, education, and many other fields of interest.
