On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we check-in with our favorite local journalists and bloggers. They told us about recent developments in the news that they liked and ones they disliked. Then they told us those moments that made them go WTF!?!

Joining us at the shop were:

Alison Cuddy (WBEZ)

Maria Zamudio (The Chicago Reporter)

Lynette Holloway (The Chicago Defender and The Root)

And in addition to our usual likes, dislikes and wtf’s, we also talked about media’s handling of the tragedy in Boston, and the role social media has been playing in disseminating information (for better or for worse).

The Barber Shop Show airs live from Carter’s Barber Shop in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood on Fridays at Noon (CST). http:/vocalo.org 89.5fm (NWI/CHI) and 90.7fm (CHI).
