The reemergence of Britney Spears on national headlines has led to new discussions over how we cover mental health in journalism. In this episode, the first in our new series of ethics discussions, we join these conversations to explore how journalists can better equip themselves to report on stories where mental health and trauma are at the forefront and how reporters can best tend to their own mental wellbeing in the field. Joining us are Karen Hawkins, co-publisher and co-editor-in-chief of the Chicago Reader and founder of Rebellious Magazine for Women, and Haley BeMiller, state government and politics reporter for the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau. Hosted by Carol Marin and produced by Justin Myers with music by Max Duggan. "So You Want to be a Reporter" is a podcast produced by DePaul University's Center for Journalism Integrity & Excellence.

Most casual John Lennon fans pick “Sometime In NYC” as their favorite solo album (hashtag Attica State). But for us die-hards, "Imagine" ranks as either #1 or #2. This week, Tony & T.J. consider this seminal record on its 50th anniversary, looking at the album's history and the immense staying power of its title track. (You “It's So Hard” fans will have to wait until Part 2, next week!) Along the way, the Fab Two™, with Producer Casey's expertise, also examine these hard-hitting Lennon topics:  How a 1981 episode of “WKRP In Cincinnati” artfully referenced Lennon to presage today's cuckoo crazy culture wars Which Chicago expressway has more hits on the Billboard charts #MattBusby  Why cruise ship Elvis impersonators rely so heavily on arrhythmic hippy hippy hip shaking and incoherent mumbling All this and more, now with a very 1987-y “Digitally Remastered” banner added to the front cover!   EPISODE LINKS: Support the Chicago Reader!

Jessica Hopper is one the most insightful rock critics working today. A long-time contributor to the Chicago Reader; she's been a columnist for The Village Voice, Chicago Tribune, and Punk Planet; the music consultant for This American Life; the editorial director for MTV News; and a senior editor at Pitchfork and Rookie. For over 20 years, she has consistently been covering women in music who women care deeply about through a feminist lens, from Liz Phair to M.I.A. to Janelle Monae to Hole to Bjork just to name a few. Her knowledge is deep, her opinions are surprising, and her writing style is fearless which is why so many music fans return to her work again and again. The extensively updated and expanded new edition of her career-spanning book, The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic came out July 6, and on BUST's latest Poptarts podcast, she explains what being “first” really means, how she helped wake the world up the crimes of R.

Unlike the majority of other cults, the House of David didn't isolate itself from the rest of the world. In fact, its members even opened their commune to visitors, welcoming up to half a million of them during peak season. They also formed their own baseball team that went on to compete with the nation's best, making headlines across the United States and contributing significantly to how the game has evolved throughout the centuries. Perhaps the most bizarre thing about the devotees of the House of David was how the men refused to shave and cut their hair. Photos show them wearing baseball outfits, with full beards and hair streaming down their backs. But as odd as their appearances were, the residents of Benton Harbor, Michigan, where the commune was located, held nothing but love for them.

Tracy Baim has been covering Chicago's LGBTQ+ community for more than 40 years, but it hasn't always been easy. Back then, she says you couldn't be openly gay in Chicago media, which is why so many LGBTQ+ journalists like herself had to create their own queer press. In 1984, fresh out of college, Baim started part-time at Gay Life Newspaper, before co-founding the LGBTQ+ newspaper, Windy City Times. Fast forward to 2018, and she's the publisher of the Chicago Reader, the iconic alt-weekly. Chicago Reader's “Pride” issue this week documents the evolution of gay activism in Chicago. The issue includes an interview with Dr. Fauci about the AIDS epidemic, and a profile of a '80's zine that explored Chicago's House music scene, among other stories. Baim spoke with host Jacoby Cochran about her decades-long career in the gay press and about what it's like seeing Chicago media's journey from sidelining the queer community to finally embracing it.

"Both lovers are duplicitous creeps -- in a perverse way they're made for each other." Jonathan Rosenbaum of the Chicago Reader sounds fun at parties... but he's not wrong about Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey in HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS. He's just wrong about how enjoyable it is to see Ms. Hudson take a wrecking ball to a man that one host calls "too pretty" and the other thinks is too picky about names for his penis. It's clearly an episode about CLASSIC CINEMA and as such we eventually work our way around to the Best Picture snub that this film received for the 2004 Academy Award ceremony and if a sprinkle of Kathryn Hahn is ever enough. Also Katherine Heigl. Romcom talk is pointless without paying respect to The Queen. Even if she is not in this movie. Enjoy!

This week on Yes But Why, I spoke with Sheri Flanders, a Chicago-based actor, comedian, writer, and visual artist. Sheri Flanders is an instructor at the Second City Training Center in Chicago, and her performance background ranges from improv, stand up, musical theater, commercials, Shakespeare, corporate training and voice over work. Sheri is half of the interracial married sketch comedy duo, Flanders. Sheri is a writer of sketch comedy, musicals, screenplays, satire, film reviews, and artist interview features. As a freelance journalist, her work has been featured in several publications including the Chicago Sun-Times, The Chicago Reader, Rescripted The Chicago Defender and McSweeney's. In both 2020 and 2021, she was invited to cover the Sundance Film Festival as part of their Press Inclusion Initiative. In this episode, we discuss all the ways in which Sheri has made art a priority in her life. She started out with a passion for fashion design that gave her an outlet for her creativity while also satisfying the need to build something with her hands. We talk about how difficult it can be to turn your art into a business (and how sometimes that’s not the right move).We talk about the consulting company she started with her husband and the work they do helping small businesses with grant writing, branding and marketing. We talk about how much she loves her community in Chicago.Sheri tells me about how her start in creative writing was working on a screenplay with her husband, and how that collaborative process led them both to take classes at Second City. Sheri talks about the Chicago improv community and doing bits with her husband. (So fun!) We talk about navigating life transitions and being patient with yourself during the process. Support Sheri Flanders by reading her recent pieces in The Chicago Reader and the Chicago Sun-Times!

On this fifth episode of Health Care by the Numbers, our host Todd Searls interviews Jessica Kim Cohen, a health and technology reporter with Modern Healthcare. At Modern Healthcare since 2019, Jessica writes about health care business, policy news and health care trends with a focus on digital health and innovations in technology. Before joining Modern Healthcare, she worked at Becker’s Hospital Review where she explored an expansive roster of technology topics. She has also been published in the Chicago Reader, Chicago Health Magazine, Baltimore City Paper and Baltimore magazine, and other regional news outlets. We can all see that technology and digital health delivery are increasingly important in the health care landscape. As just one example, use of electronic health records has grown enormously over the last twenty years due to both federal requirements and significant public and private investments. This means that everyone in the health care space needs to understand technology – this is not just for CIOs anymore. Jessica and Todd discuss how systems and providers are adapting to this world. The episode also digs into how access to technology creates equitable access to high quality care. There have been serious challenges in getting broadband internet access in rural areas – a huge issue as telehealth becomes increasingly important during the COVID 19 pandemic. There are exciting opportunities for patients to take charge of their own care with at-home health engagement platforms, but patients need to be trained and comfortable using these new tools.

My guest today, Chicago-born and raised, Roy Kinsey, is a bit of an anomaly. A black, queer-identified, rapper, and librarian or as he puts it, Rapbrarian. Roy’s escape from trauma and creative outlet as a kid was writing and music and also a love of books and learning. He began sharing his words and beats, rapping at a young age, but really began to elevate his pursuit of music-making in college, performing and refining his craft. Graduating, he began making a name for himself, performing, recording and releasing albums, while simultaneously earning degrees that would find him working as a librarian by day and an artist by night.A few albums in, Roy began to feel like an essential part of him was being kept from his music and also his community, so he made the decision to come out as queer on an album at a time very few others in the space of rap and hip-hop were out. It was a moment that would transform him and his music. Roy has since released a series of powerful albums, including his latest powerful reflection, KINSEY: A Memoir (http://www.roykinsey.com/shop). He’s been featured on the cover of major local publications like Chicago Reader and the Chicago Tribune, in and on major national, and international publications like Billboard, LA Times, NPR, WBEZ’s Vocalo. And Roy has even found a way to bring his love of music and books together, running workshops as a librarian in the Teen Services/Youmedia department for Chicago Public Libraries.You can find Roy Kinsey at:Website : http://www.roykinsey.com/Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/roy_kinsey/Check out our offerings & partners: Backcountry: The best outdoor gear online for people who love to get outside.

"Criticism as an art: A Conversation With Jonathan Rosenbaum"

Journey of an Aesthete Podcast

"One of the earliest film critics I ever read was Pauline Kael , who was an enormous influence on so many of us in the 70s. I would literally read all of her reviews for films as I watched them in theaters, comparing notes. I Lost It At The Movies was a late 70s favorite and I could recite whole passages of her prose from memory at that time. Yet this was only a prelude to further developments, even changes of heart. In the beginning of the early 80s I had not yet discovered the great Manny Farber, nor our guest Jonathan Rosenbaum . I think my first encounter with Rosenbaum was through a now classic book on Jacques Rivette from the 1970s but that I was to read only later, in the 1980s. (I was not that precocious as child - Kael was about my limit.) I was so hungry to read anything about Rivette that it was inevitable I would discover Rivette: Texts and Interviews (BFI, 1977). This in turn led me to realize what an unusually diverse thinker Rosenbaum truly was. Like Farber, Rosenbaum is adamant that criticism is an art form and he treats it as such, in attitude as well as in the prose style that is reflective of his whole attitude. In this sense he also follows Henry James. One of the hallmarks of a great critic, and not merely a good or competent one is if you can tolerate reading them when their opinions or verdicts are contrary to your own. For example, I certainly don't agree with Rosenbaum about Tarantino just as I strongly disagreed with Kael about Tarkovsky and Cassavetes. I think there is room, and room should be made, for both Quentin Tarantino and Kelly Reichardt. I might be unusual in this sense. I told Rosenbaum at the outset of this episode that "he really gets inside of the movie". If any of us "gets inside" of an artwork, really inside of it, we will grow and expand as people. One of the blocks to doing this is too much extraneous stuff that gets in the way. I appreciate that Rosenbaum can talk as freely and knowledgeable about McCoy Tyner and Billie Holiday as much as Jerry Lewis, Pedro Costa, or Anna Biller and Guy Maddin. He is good friends with filmmaker Mark Rappaport who was also friends of my late father, Rosenbaum has always championed the underrated or unknown, like our very first guest on this podcast, Jon Jost . Sometimes the personal and artistic commingle and this is where a culture can really develop. It was heartening to hear him say cinephilia is living and living well. As he continues to teach into the future I hope others, too, become cinephiles.” Jonathan’s Bio: Jonathan Rosenbaum was film critic for the Chicago Reader from 1987 to 2008. His books include CINEMATIC ENCOUNTERS 2 (2019), CINEMATIC ENCOUNTERS (2018), GOODBYE CINEMA, HELLO CINEPHILIA (2010), THE UNQUIET AMERICAN (2009), DISCOVERING ORSON WELLES (2007), ESSENTIAL CINEMA (2004), MOVIE MUTATIONS (coedited with Adrian Martin, 2003), ABBAS KIAROSTAMI (with Mehrnaz Saeed-Vafa, 2003, 2018), MOVIE WARS (2000), DEAD MAN (2000), MOVIES AS POLITICS (1997), PLACING MOVIES (1995), THIS IS ORSON WELLES by Orson Welles and Peter Bogdanovich (edited, 1992), GREED (1991), MIDNIGHT MOVIES (with J. Hoberman, 1983), and MOVING PLACES (1980). He has taught at State University of New York at Stony Brook, New York University, the School of Visual Arts (in New York), the University of California branches at Berkeley, San Diego, and Santa Barbara, the University of Chicago, the University of St. Andrews (in Scotland), the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, KinoKlub Split (in Croatia), and FilmFactory (in Sarajevo).
