Episode Notes

In this edition, our hosts Jon Amarilio, Jack Sanker and Mghnon Martin ponder the question: What the heck is going on in Chicago and gun violence? They’re joined by Amy Thompson from the Office of the Cook County Public Defender and Max Kapustin from the University of Chicago Crime Lab to discuss the severity and root causes of Chicago’s gun violence problem, whether recent discourse in the national media and by President Trump accurately characterizes the problem, and how we can find workable solutions to make a difference.
