Inspire. Educate. Entertain.

Conversations featuring authors and influential leaders in the arts, media and business.


Two new CONVERSATIONS this week and a favorite program From The Archive. First, an in-depth look at leadership and the launch this weekend of the new Spertus Institute series "Critical Conversations" with President and CEO, Dr. Hal M. Lewis. Next, we delve into the backstory with photographer Michael Brosilow, whose extensive archive includes the last 32 years at Steppenwolf and scores of other theaters and productions, large and small, in and out of Chicago.  

Our FTA (From the Archive) for St. Patrick's Day features the March 2017 conversation with John Williams: Drawn to the Music who will be appearing with Jimmy Keane and many more at the St. Patrick's Hooley XIV 2018 on Friday, March 16th, 2018 at Celtic Knot in Evanston.
