Nick welcomes writer Monica Eng from Axios Chicago, to talk about the recent Mayoral race, her book “Made In Chicago,” her recent trip to France where Chicago artist Robert Guinan is all the rage, a gelato shop in Lincoln Square that also performs side-show acts, and much more. Then, Esmeralda Leon and Nick talk about the upcoming NASCAR event that is going to cause nightmares throughout Chicago, they also discuss some truly awful game shows, and insane Japanese TV shows which include stunts like blowing off cannons in sleeping people’s bedrooms, and “The Screaming Man,” who jumps out from behind walls and screams at innocent bystanders. And, of course, Nick’s Dad Tells a Joke. [EP151]
