CHIRP Radio Podcast: Person of Interest

CHIRP

Person of Interest is the personal perspectives series produced by CHIRP Radio News. As a community radio station, we feel it’s necessary to talk to you, your neighbors, your fellow Chicagoans about how news-making events affect you, about how you’re getting along, about what’s on your mind. This series is an attempt to listen to the people around us rather than to those in the headlines. Person of Interest is that person you see on the train or at a cafe or in the park that makes you wonder, “Who are you?” Person of Interest is your barista, your taxi driver, your next door neighbor. It’s not breaking news, but collectively it’s the real story of our city.
