Re:sound #130 The Chicago Show (rebroadcast)

This hour, we're bringing you a favorite from our archive... Chicago. Hogbutcher to the world, jewel of the Midwest, and everything in-between.

Wild Onion by Gwen Macsai.

Chicago, as all Chicagoans know, means wild onion. Wild, as in feral, unpredictable, fierce, blustery, lunatic. Onion, as in layered, spicy, sometimes stinky, sometimes sweet, and always tear-inducing.
