On this week's episode, we examine the economic blow of students leaving college towns and the health risks associated with their planned return.
This week's lineup:
* Dr. Sheldon Jacobson, a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, discusses his concerns over the safety of students, staff and communities when college students come back to campus.
* Lee Gaines of Illinois Newsroom talks with Robin Fretwell Wilson and Sage Kim, co-authors of a report for the Institute of Government and Public Affairs that examines how the Illinois Department of Corrections is handling the pandemic.
* Carrie Shepherd of WBEX introduces us to Anthony McGill, a Chicago area native who is principal clarinetist for the New York Philharmonic, who has sparked other musicians to use their art as a form of protest.
* Claire Hartfield, author of A Few Red Drops, talks about her book that chronicles a deadly race riot in Chicago in 1919.
