Mike Stephen talks with Chicago Housing Initiative executive director Leah Levinger and board member Rodney Dawkins about the struggles of public housing in Chicago (see also Eve Ewing's New Republic story "Rahm's Next Scandal? Public Housing"), checks in with Newcity editor/publisher Brian Hieggelke about getting into the local film industry via the Chicago Film Project, and chats with Illinois Eye Institute executive director Dr. Leonard Messner about how the Eye Health Life Health Coalition is advocating for eye health in this region's most underserved communities. Meanwhile, we recall an encounter from a TBOX (aka The Twelve Bars of Christmas) past. This week's local music is provided by Fever Chills.
