Chicagoist Podcast 3/12 - CHIRP & EUFF

By Karl Klockars in Miscellaneous on Mar 12, 2010 8:00PM

chicagoistpodcastcollage0312.jpg It's a festival of acronyms on this week's entry to the Chicagoist Podcast Series! First up, we spoke with Shawn Campbell, president and founder of the Chicago Independent Radio Project, aka CHIRP. Why did she want to start it? Where does it stand now? What's in the future - and does it include a low-power FM station? And what does Congress have to do to make that allowable by law? All of these questions and more are answered.

Following that, the European Union Film Festival is back in town at the Siskel Film Center. Like last year, we've checked in with Chicagoist's Very Own Rob Christopher to find out more about the films he's been writing about, some trends and themes in this years films, and about what else the festival has to offer.
