Lots of people were wondering if global warming had finally arrived, here at home. This week, stories about this new reality.
Sunday, February 24, 2013 8:00pmWe pick up where we left off last week in our second hour from Harper High School in Chicago. We find out if a shooting in the neighborhood will derail the school's Homecoming game and dance. We hear the origin story of one of Harper's gangs.

We found so many incredible and surprising stories, this show is a two-parter; you can listen to Part Two here.
