INDIVISIBLE CHICAGO PODCAST SHOW NOTES FOR MONDAY, MAY 11, 2020

_1. Remember Hope? This week, Becoming, the documentary chronicling Michelle Obama’s book tour, premiered on Netflix. The documentary is partly a book tour, partly biography, partly a peek behind the scenes. The key, however, lies in the conversations the former First Lady has with young people.

_2. For 71 years, except for a two year gap, Illinois 9 has been represented by just two people: current Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, of course, and prior to her, elected in 1948, Sidney Yates. Authors George Van Dusen and Michael Dorf wrote Clear it with Sid: Sidney Yates and fifty years of presidents, pragmatism, and public service. This interview was recorded January 10, 2020.

This week, Paul goes behind the curtain with variety! First up, Windy City Playhouse has truly made a name for itself in immersive theater meaning the audience becomes part of the scenery so to speak, although the actors pay no mind. The audience moves along from a dorm room to a jail cell to a sauna in The Recommendation, and moves from room to room in Southern Gothic (sharing in treats along the way), and the latest play offering called “Every Brilliant Thing,” are all experiences you won’t soon forget. Check them out at windycityplayhouse.com.

 Next up (starting at 24:07 into the program), the authors of the new book “Clear it with Sid,” discuss the life of long-serving Congressman Sidney Yates who represented the liberal lakefront and beyond. The story of a  liberal who got along well with conservatives offers some lessons for today’s politicians. The authors are long time staffer Michael Dorf and current Skokie Mayor George Van Dusen who both discuss the lessons of Yates’ life and how they might apply today.

 Finally (starting at 40:01 into the program),  a new web series called “the Search for Aliveness” presents the unique formula each of us lives to feel alive and accomplish our dreams. With opportunities for listeners to be part of the series, you’ll find this discussion with host/narrator Chad Gabriel to be inspiring and interesting. You can find more at www.thesearchforaliveness.com. So, what are you waiting for? Check out the podcast now!

In this episode, we sit down with Skokie Mayor George Van Dusen and Trustee Karen Gray-Keeler. We discuss their motivation, how to become civically engaged and what new things are happening in Skokie.

Mayor Van Dusen started in government by working for congressman Sidney Yates in Michigan. You can learn more about his background in his new book, Clear it With Sid, Sidney R. Yates and Fifty Years of Presidents, Pragmatism, and Public Service. Trustee Gray-Keeler got involved in Skokie government first through volunteering at her children's schools. She then got involved in the commissions, the Caucas party and then became a Trustee. To learn more about how to join a commission, click here.

We discuss the Students' Outstanding Artist Recognition (SOAR) program, which is a way to showcase Skokie's fine art. Recently my daughter's artwork was displayed and the Mayor took a photo with her. More information on the program can be found by clicking here.

We discuss many of the great things that have recently come to Skokie, like Ignite Gaming which was recently featured on this podcast. We discuss various projects on the horizon like 8000 North and breweries coming to Skokie. We also discuss the high-tech park, the new Skokie Yellow Line station at Oakton Street, and Skokie connections to the world and its incredible diversity.
