Introducing the Chicagoist Podcast - Inaugural Edition!

oldtimeyradio020209.jpg It is our extreme pleasure and privilege to present to you, Ever Present Reader, a new audio outlet for Chicagoist. This podcast series has been in the pipeline for a long time, and now it's ready to be birthed unto the world, pink and naked and here for your entertainment. We'll be providing you a new podcast each Monday to start your week off with Chicagocentric information that probably isn't being covered on local radio and TV.

For this, our inaugural podcast, we figured it'd be good to start slow and introduce you to a couple of us. Marcus and I discuss for the final time - probably - some post-Inauguration details and experiences that just couldn't find a home in a post. Sandwiched in between our conversation - pun completely intended - is Louisa Chu, chef, author, TV personality in her own right, and fixer for tonight's "No Reservations" Chicago episode. Ever wonder who goes out and finds all the places for Tony Bourdain to enjoy around the world? One of them is Louisa and we talk about how they put together tonight's episode and behind-the-scenes highlights to the whole process.

Stream away to your enjoyment - due to minor first-time-out technical problems it's probably best not to download it yet - but soon enough we'll have this all worked out, FREE to all, ready for subscription and ready for primetime. Despite the kinks, we really wanted to get this out into the world, and we're excited for you to hear it each week. We'll keep you up to speed with the tech stuff but enough with the behind-the-scenes, on with the show!
