That is enormously problematic ma. Why do you think this is an important part of understanding. How women are counseled about portion around the country. I cover abortion. I've been covering abortion for years. I actually spent two weeks in texas covering this unprecedented law. That has just taken effect. There has cut women off from the procedure after six weeks station. Those laws are what everybody is paying attention to the courts. The supreme court which decided not to intervene in this case is what everybody is paying attention to and they should be paying attention because this is. This is a direct challenge to roe v wade and the closest that we've come since roe v wade in nineteen seventy-three to patients not being able to access abortion in this country can put reporting the story. I realized that there's this whole other invisible barrier to abortion that we don't talk about we don't even think about and that's doctors about what they say and what they don't say and i think we imagine our doctors to be objective. We imagine them to provide objective medical care but at the end of the day. Doctors are people there people with beliefs and values and sometimes in situations like this.

"The city I ran it December of two thousand eighteen in Robin Aamer host and creator of the city told us the story. Hi. Al by. So we're talking about a dump that is six stories high in Chicago. Yeah. That's right. Six stories tall. And it was on this huge lot twenty one acres. The size of thirteen football fields. The story of how this huge dump came to be in the middle of a residential neighborhood is one of the most striking stories of corruption and institutional indifference that I've ever come across. It stunned me when I first found out about it about her ruthless. This city can be about how stark the divisions are between black and white rich and poor between the people who hoard power, and the people who have to fight for their fair share. There's one man at the center of this story who sets everything into motion here he is. Okay. All of that. Table. I was the first one basically started all dumps the first. I made a lot of money over there. Shanin. It made a lot of money. And we wanna know some started can't warmth to machete that could've gone to for years to come.

The can of worms he opened unleashed this chain of events that went way beyond Chicago, eventually, the FBI would be giving him cover as he built the dump. He's not at the very beginning of the story and what we're definitely going to get back to him later. But why don't we rewind a little bit and take it from the very beginning. AM.

"I love the feature local music on this show and this week here in some indie rock jams from flora. And we are talking about podcasting. This morning local podcast local on demand audio storytelling. We've got some great podcasters here with us from the city podcast, Robin Amer's here. Also from the always Andersonville podcast, Laura Austin and on the phone with us from Detroit. But he does a lot of stuff here in Chicago. Shannon case in who has a few podcasts. He's got homemade stories and trouble. And I'm very happy that everyone is here with us today. So talking to us about your show. So laura. I'll start with you. What do you do with always Andersonville? What's your podcast about? So our podcast features. You know, we have this through over three hundred business. District up in Andersonville, and we want to feature the stories of our business owners and our community members. You know, the NFL business district is full of all of these independent and local businesses, and we want to encourage people to come and visit and shop local. And we thought that a good way to do that word be to interview our business owner, so they could share their stories. It's interesting because in a place like Andersonville, and really Andersonville has really blown up in terms of the businesses and the restaurants that are that are there, and it's wonderful. But boy, it's like there's so much. Maybe there are things that you don't know about or the things that you overlook that maybe walk by every day. But you don't know what that they're they're exactly. And and you know, we really want to give it the heart at like why these folks settled on this neighborhood why they chose Andersonville to open up their business. I mean, they pour their blood, sweat and tears into operating their business and. And they've come from all parts of the world to to kind of settle here. And you know, most of our business owners live in the neighborhood as well. And we just you know, we wanted to to provide this service to them. You know, as a way to market their business as a way to get people to connect with them because that is what is going to encourage people to shop at these brick and mortar stores instead of online on Amazon where there isn't that kind of personal connection. Sure. And I've got a clip here. From the always Andersonville podcast to always Andersonville the podcast immediately. I just had a sense of warmth that Andersonville was the right place. Really you have to use like joy as your guide in whether or not this is the right path for you. I do feel really blessed to to live here. I'm probably never leaving. So there you go. There's the clip from the always Andersonville podcast. It's pretty cool telling the stories of local business owners, and and Andersonville what's going on there. I want to move on Shannon. Let's talk about you have so many things happening. You are just a storytelling guru, and you have a few podcasts. Now, we have a clip here. I think this is from the trouble, right? Yeah. Yeah. I gave you a clip from the trouble. But I I do too podcast podcasts. I just do the two. But but the clip you have is from from the trouble, I do with the WBZ. All right. So tell us what the trouble is. Okay. So well, you know, the trouble is people. I've talked to people who bid in trouble. They still in trouble. Maybe or how they got out of it holiday still in it. It is a offshoot from I by casts homema- stories. So I do a so-called homemade stories where I'll tell stories fiction, but most of them are non fiction, and I go really personal. I challenge myself to talk about things that that you know, I I might not even feel comfortable about immediately. So I do feel comfortable out. I'll let it loose because I think it may help somebody else or it may just be interesting. Sure to hear about somebody going through some some situations in life and in trouble kind of came from that. Because so many of my stories. But now, I get the interview people in we're near at a point when they're prepared to tell their story. I can hear their story, you know, people like to get things off HSA eventually. Yeah. Have you gone through something you eventually want to talk about it? So this clip that we're going to hear doesn't need any sort of setup. You know, I talked to a principal in vitro. There was a national story about a scandal going on with kickbacks from vendors principles in Detroit. And I spoke to Casey will burn the person who the scandal broke on you know, they pretty much found her out. I and she was at a point where she just wants to get things off for chest. And we talked and she was very very very open. All right. So this is a clip from the trouble podcast the recipients. Did they ever have questions on where money came from or? Absolutely not. Kids. Anyway, don't care as long as they get the meal. They don't care where it came from. How 'bout yourself? Sure. You have an ability to be able to to get money when needed. Sure, did you benefit yourself. How did I did, you know, it's a residual income? If you will Casey describes herself as a Robin Hood taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. But she admits that she kept some of it. I like it. All right. That's the clip from the trouble podcast, and we can get that at Shannon case in dot com. Right. Correct. All right. Well, Robin, Robin Aamer here from the city podcast and Robin. I know that you and I have spoken before about your podcast here on this show. But give us the refresher. Because the story you're telling I mean, it's classic Chicago. It's corruption it's under the table back room dealings. Tell us what it is. Sure. So the city podcast from USA today. We like to say that we tell true stories of how power works in urban America. And our first season that we that we released. This fall is set here in Chicago. And as you said, it's a very Chicago story. So over ten episodes, we tell the story of a group of homeowners in the north Lonsdale neighborhood on Chicago's west side who fought back against this guy who was associated with the Chicago mafia who built this incredible six-storey illegal garbage dump right in the middle of their neighborhood. And as these residents fight back against this illegal dump they come across corrupt bureaucrats and the FBI. Bye and good old fashioned American racism, and so you have in this one story with all of these twists and turns a story that I think really reveals how a city like Chicago actually operates and what you see if you pick up the Rockin. Look at the unsightly underbelly. Exactly got a clip from the city podcast will roll that right now. And so the story of what.
